I have travelled to Shirdi from Hyderabad (my native place) in my car on 10th September and came back on 11th September 2017. While going to Shirdi I took the route via Nizamabad, Nanded, Jalna, Parbani, and Aurangabad. The route was horrible and terrifying. Only HYD to NZB ( 180KM) was a national highway which is 4 lane. From there to Shirdi was horrible. We took more than 15 hours to reach Shirdi. Total distance in this route was 680KM. This route will not get repaired in another 15-20 years. while coming back we drove down via Ahmednagar, Solapur and Zaheerabad. This was little better route. The distance was 610 KM. We took 13 Hours. I will suggest to take this route always to go to Shirdi by road. Hope this information is useful to all.
