I could not find any source in TAI
, but the undermentioned trip done by Rohit Banglore-Lucknow in Feb., '16, and posted on Team-bhp, which I reproduce.
From Delhi to Jhansi, take YEW till Agra, then Agra Bombay Highway till Jhansi, read somewhere route around Gwalior has some 2/4 laneing being done, no update.
Completed the Bangalore to Lucknow run on 8-feb.
Here are the latest updates
Blore- Hyd Smooth found a very nice stop with clean bath rooms and good restaurant large parking area called Food Pyramid 25/30 km after Kurnool towards Hyd.
Hyd - Nagpur
Cafe coffee day 20 Km after Hyd. roads are very good except a 50 km stretch closer to Nagpur it becomes smooth 50 km before Nagpur. I did not find any good places to eat after CCD
Nagpur - Jhansi via Chindwara and Narsinghpur best phase fantastic high speed road well marked even in two lanes. Enjoyed the most + the Satpura forests.
Excellent veg dhabha called Jai Shriram dhabha 60 km before Sagar and 9 km after dewri towards Jansi. Clean toilets as well.
Jhansi to Lucknow good roads from Jhansi to Orai
Horrible from Orai to Kalpi due to sand trucks. Kalpi to Lucknow smooth.
Hope this helps fellow travellers.
Did not go through Kujraho as was not sure about roads in that area.
PS : Stayed in Hotel Jhansi was pleasantly surprised to find such a nice place in Jhansi has a lot of history as well. Bangalore - Kanpur : Route Queries - Page 3 - Team-BHP
