The entire stretch is being revamped big time, including service roads. Re-asphalting is happening at many places.

BHPian vivek95 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Guys, I bring here good news again. I did 2 more drives on the Pune–Satara sector ( owing to my Mumbai–Belgaum–Mumbai trips ) since the last update above. Presently driving Mumbai–Belgaum again, have stopped at Mahabaleshwar turn off at Wai phata. The new company SDPL which has taken over the project from Reliance is making rapid progress every passing week. I bet high, in another 5 months or so, this nightmare will end and we will all get to enjoy a breezy drive on the 6 laner Pune-Satara highway. The entire stretch is being revamped big time, including service roads. Re-asphalting is happening at many places. Check out these sample awesome stretches.

The all new avatar of Pune–Satara–Pune:

However note that this revamp may not offer a runway like driving experience like the Chitradurga–Tumkur or Hubli–Chitradurga stretches as undulations might persist. But surely the road will be consistently smooth and the overall experience will be much better than the above mentioned Karnataka counterparts, given the scenic beauty of Sahyadris ( western ghats ) in Maharashtra and the sheer number of awesome eating joints/restaurants scattered all along Pune–Satara.

Some pics of work in progress:

I drove back Belgaum to Mumbai yesterday, made a short video of the revamped Satara–Pune 6 lane. This is how the entire 136 kms stretch will be upgraded in the coming months. It is absolute fun to drive on the smooth road with beautiful scenery all around
