After a long hibernation I will be out on the roads -
I will be driving down from Delhi to Raipur (Madhya Pradesh), next month. What I have gathered from Goolge Map- Delhi to Jabalpur is a very striaght road-NH 26. From Jabalpur to Raipur - NH-12. My main concerns are :
1. How is the condition of NH-26 & NH-12 for the entire stretch ?
2. Has anyone driven through this route recently ?
3. Whether it is safe for night driving ?
4. How much time it will take for the entire trip ?
I know its a lot of queries ...please help[.

Few points:

Jabalpur-Raipur is not a great stretch. I didn't drive but i did do a train+bus trip to amarkantak and later into the Bastar region. I used bus from Raipur to Jagdalpur and even that stretch was pretty bad. Jabalpur-Bilaspur (due to the apathy of both state governments) is worse - I had discussed that option extensively with locals (bus operators and dharamshala managers in amarkantak) before ruling that option out.

Of the rest, from a trip taken by a friend last november and my own trip two years ago, Gwalior Jhansi is not a good road. Rest, others can comment.

The rest of Delhi-Jabalpur - there'e a few threads here and more detailed information on Team BHP.
