Dear Members

I am planning to drive to Shirdi from Pune in my own car (small). Can anyone confirm the best route to take? I have been suggested to take NH 60 (Pune Nashik highway) to Sangamner and then to Shirdi, a distance of about 180 kms. How is the condition of road in this route? Is it fine to take ones own car?

Regards,
Rajib

I stay at the eastern fringes of Pune, so the Ahmednagar highway is convenient for me. The road quality is quite good, except for the section around Ahmednagar city. Pune-Nashik road should be fine as well, through the last time I used that road was way back in 2011.

I went through nagar road in 2017 and the drive wasn't much to talk about. Have 'heard' that sangamner route is better. Have driven till sangamner and found that stretch ie chakan-sangamner to be good.

Preferred route is via Ahmednagar bypass.
Sangamner route was notorious from the traffic jams, though road widening road has started and is completed for big stretches of the route.

Not the bypass snotty. That 'road' is just one huge crater after another. The road through the city is ok.

The road was mostly empty except for me and a few trucks. The max speed I could reach was 20kmph. I had a friend who had decided to stretch out on the back seat. His struggles were fun! He gave up half way through the bypass and decided to sit up though.
