|eavy truck movement) and then on the
NH14 via Pali. Sirohi to Abu Road and on to Ahmedabad highway is super, except
for the patch between Palanpur and Mehsana which is not as good as the rest,
but still very good. Ahmedabad Chittaurgarh road is great and between
Chittaurgarh and Kishengarh where you meet the NH8 the road is superb too. The
old car (120K KM 2006 CRDe Scorpio) and the old couple (62 & 59) weathered
the trip very well. No spares used, no medicines consumed.

I guess once the 4-laning of the Kishangarh-Ajmer-Beawar road is over, the NH8 will also improve
They made a bypass and Railway overbridge at Kihangarh, but ruined it by a) setting up a toll booth for collecting Rs.5 only with only one window and b) by allowing marble traders set up shops/yards along the bypass. The huge trailers carrying marble stones block the entire stretch.
Absolutely true,for that 5rs toll,there is such a humongous jam created,and the stretch around the marble yards is like driving on the moon!I dont think that 4 laning would be completed any time soon,in fact theres nothing happening between Kishengarh & Ajmer!
[NEWS INDIA]: NH-24 from Delhi to Dasna to be widened!! - xBhp.com : The Global Indian Biking Commun

Now that the real estate boom on areas dependant on NH24 is causing long jams, the Ministry seems to have woken up.
I still can't understand how internal sector roads in Indirapuram and Noida are wider than the NH24 from Delhi Border up to Hapur by-pass!
To think most of the people planning these roads have degrees in Trasnport Planning from my alma mater, or is it that nobody listens to them?

None I can think of in the Bombay region, except that Bhiwandi (not on any major highway) has been declared a sensitive spot
Bangalore has declared a holiday on 30th and 1st
Ayodya + CWG opening ceremony - I guess whole of NCR is going to be under scanner and high alert.
Malegaon on NH3, on Dhule-Nashik highway?
From news I understand whole of NOrth Goa will be under 144 from midnight..(NH 17?)
In Hyderabad, pillion riding would be prohibited from tomorrow between 9 pm and 6 am for a week. However, this restriction would not be applicable to those below 12 years
All liquor shops throughout Karnataka would remain closed for two days from September 30
yeah... even bulk SMS banned...
I get a feeling that govt is being a little over cautious.. but i welcome this. I hope the some restrictions be imposed on media as well. in last few years media has created false sensation out of nothing and blown it out of proportion. Politicians shud be banned from giving interviews
Well,In karnataka holiday has been declared only to schools and colleges.The press release specifies govt offices will be open as usual.IT firms too are'nt declaring holiday.

Gurudutt drove from Delhi to Ranthambhore. NH8 to Manoharpur (after Shahpura, before Jaipur),
then state roads to Dausa NH11, on Japur-Agra highway)
His report, "Road till Dausa ok and manageable. Road from Dausa to Lalsot could any day give the Leh-Ladakh terrain a run for its money.
Lalsot to Sawai very good road, but some patches of rough are present".
Route taken: Delhi-Gurgaon-Manesar-Behror-Kotputli-Shahpura-Manoharpur-Pratapgarh-Dausa-Lalsot-Sawai Madhopur-Ranthambhore
oth places to get onto the superfast NH76/79.Reason local cab drivers still prefer the NH8 as it is cheaper since no toll!!

Worse than this is there is also a parallel 2-laned road from Udaipur to Chittorgarh which some of my friends have wrongly taken - it is not only 2-laned, but also not in good condition. Keep your eyes open for teh unction at the end of Udaipur bypass (when you are coming from south side) and take the right turn towards Chitorgarh/Bhilwara. Don't be confused by the NH8 sign pointing to Ajmer/Jaipur. Remember, NH76/79 GQ road does NOT go via Ajmer, only the 2-laner NH8 does.
Moral of the story - do your own research before getting onto the highway, never ask around taxi drivers and bus drivers for routing help!

The best route is via Jaipur. Because the route is not only shorter, but you can bypass all major towns.
You can take the Jaipur bypass towards Ajmer till the end, then take the NH11 (Agra Road) from there, which is also a nice 4-laner.
Turn off NH11 at Dausa, and go to Sawai Madhopur/Ranthambhore. I have no idea about the condition of the Dausa-Sawai road,
but normally that is also good. You should not take more than 8 hours to reach.
In case you prefer the Agra route for some reason, you can check out the Mathura-Bharatpur road which is a short cut, avoiding Agra city.
You can take Nh11 all the way to Dausa and then go to Sawai.
I have no idea how the district roads from Bharatpur direct to Sawai are, better to stick to the NH. I heard that NH2 to Agra is also in a bad shape.
Thanks. There is also this route. Ranthambore – Lalsot – Dausa – Sikandra – Rajgarh – Alwar – Bhiwari – Gurgaon – Delhi
Any idea if this is shorter/better? I will be using a City so road clearance is also an issue if the roads are poor.
NO idea how the road to Alwar is. The Alwar route is also popular, but I prefer to stick to 4-laners for their speed and predictability
A word of caution if u r taking NH2/NH 11. NH2 is next to worst towards agra... NH8 is surely a better option while going,
but towards delhi i feel there are far too many jams... NH8 till bhiwadi or behror depending on choice then state highway to alwar.
I would like to the options if one has to go through NH12 - Tonk... how feasible is it?? Because I have two days off this weekend thinking few places in rajasthan. Yet to zero on something.

Sohna road is being widened into expressway.literally off road experience in June till damdama lake.. Also local guy collect toll.....
Its better to take gurgaon faridabad road though the widening is going on its still drivable..except for last 500 metre stretch entering into faridabad from gurgaon side
06 September 2010 at 23:58
and bypass on the other hand is very beautiful road, which can bypass even Manali.A very good option, if going towards Keylong or Leh. Take a break at Naggar and bypass the whole mess

This section is part of East-West Corridor connecting Silchar in Assam to Porbandar in Gujarat
Qazigund-Banihal 10-km long tunnel will relegate Banihal Pass & existing Jawahar Tunnel to the pages of history
Chenani-Nashri tunnel will also be 10 kms long, I have no idea where it comes on the NH1A
After the tunnels are built, travel time between Jammu & Srinagar is expected to reduce to 4 hours, says the news report
I like 4 am.
but i have seen big traffic jams at HR-RJ border at that time too
I am targeting 6AM to hit the the road. Should hit manesar by 7 AM. Is it ok ?
What is the major chaotic point in the route ??
The border check post where trucks pile up in disorderly fashion
No, Daruhera-Neemrana check postBest bet would be between 5 to 6 am.
