I travelled on 19th and 25th May 2019. Kolhapur to Tavandi is highway, surface is very good. You turn for Uttur and surface is bad for about 10km. Once you get into Maharashtra again, the surface is great, very recently done. Upto Sawantwadi. a great surprise. Last year same part was horrible. I had to take my vehicle to garrage on return to Kolhapur.
