Long Drive in NCR

Last year sometime in Oct-Nov'09 I drove across the three states of NCR - Delhi, Haryana and UP - on a single day. I started the drive from Gurgaon, then went to Noida, then to Greater Noida and then to Faridabad and finally drove back to Gurgaon. The total distance comes to approximately 200 Kms. That also gives an idea how large the NCR area is.

I tried taking the best route - which is optimized first for time and then for distance. One trick which has generally worked for me (as I have realized through experience) is to take the roads which have lesser number of red lights, are in good condition and do not have too many large vehicles like buses and trucks.

Here's the route I took for the different legs of my drive.

Gurgaon to Noida
NH8 -> Mahipalpur -> Vasant Kunj -> Ber Sarai -> IIT Delhi Flyover -> Okhla Flyover -> Apollo Hospital -> Kalindi Kunj -> Sector 37 Noida 

Noida to Greater Noida
Sector 37 Noida -> Mahamaya Flyover Noida -> Expressway (one has to just keep on driving) -> Pari Chowk Greater Noida 

Greater Noida to Faridabad
Pari Chowk Greater Noida -> Mahamaya Flyover -> Kalindi Kunj -> Nahar Road (one cross over the Nahar once to the other side and cross back again near Tigaon road) -> Tigaon Road -> Sector 78 Faridabad -> Sector 14 Faridabad -> Ajronda Mor Faridabad (one has to cross over the Nahar through the bridge near Ajronda Mor) -> Neelam Chowk Faridabad-> Metro Chowk Faridabad -> NIT

Faridabad to Gurgaon
Metro Chowk Faridabad -> Sainik Colony Faridabad -> Pahadi Road -> Bristol Hotel Gurgaon -> IFFCO Chowk Gurgaon
