    That's a fantastic trip you had.

    How is the Hyd - Vijayawada road; last time when I went to Vijayawada (mid of 2012) road laying work was on progress.

    Share Araku valley photos; I am also planning to do a trip to Vizag and Araku.

    Man, your project Punto Sports has come up really well. Though had seen her after the project, she just looks captivating in the second pic :)The mileage shows that you know how to nurture your beauty at high speeds. Good example of driving at triple digit speeds; yet achieving good mileage :up

    This road is really good ( except 1 KM due to Flyover work is in progress). I have completed Miyapur- Vijayawada total 323 KM in 3 hr 25 minutes, and with 110-120 KMPH constantly. You will really enjoy this stretch same as NH5 or HYD-Banglore NH7 road.

    Yes Ganges, from my last couple of long trip I used to get this mileage.

    Hyd- Hampi:- 19.7 KMPL with 110-120.
    Ananthapur-Ooty-hyderabad:- 19.5 KMPLwith 110-120 KMPH.
    Now this. So I used to drive at constant velocity 110-120, get the good mileage and avg speed also helps me to reach on time.

    Expecting a detailed travelogue and loads of pics from you Suman. Sadly, we all couldn't join the party.

    I have done Hyderabad - Vijayawada trip in the first week of December. Except for the last 80kms stretch, every inch of Highway is a bliss to drive.
    Jaggayyapet flyover (80kms before Vijayawada) isn't completed yet and have to take a detour with-in the town. Then the road on the last 40kms stretch which is after the last toll gate is being re-laid and hence the traffic is being diverted on to one side of the highway. This will slow you down, else Hyd-Vja is a breeze to drive.
