National Highway 4 (NH 4) is a major National Highway in Western and Southern India. NH 4 links four of the 10 most populous Indian cities - Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Chennai. NH 4 is 1235 km in length and passes through the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

NH 4 constitutes roughly 90% of the Golden Quadrilateral's Mumbai-Chennai segment. As a part of this project NH 4 has been widened from two lane single carriageway to four lane dual carriageway. The highway is known as Pune-Bangalore ( PB ) Road in some parts of Karnataka. The Mumbai-Pune section of the highway was supplemented by the Mumbai-Pune Expressway in 2000.The highway passes through populated towns and cities of Maharashtra and Karnataka namely Satara, Karad, Kolhapur, Belagavi, Dharwad, Hubli, Davangere and Tumkur and by-passes Sangli-Miraj twin cities by 40 kilometers. NH4 actually starts from Chennai at Koyambedu junction & work is in progress from Koyambedu junction to Maduravoyal which should be about 5-6 Kms, the work that is in progress is only for median & not for the road. From Maduravoyal one can easily enjoy the drive until Vellore. From Vellore, NH46 starts towards Krishnagiri which is completed, however, NH4 takes a diversion towards Bangalore.

The Pune bypass, part of National Highway 4

The NH4 by-passes Pune city from Dehu Road to Katraj. The Pune bypass is 4 lane with 2 lane service roads on each side. NH4 now also bypasses the busy Katraj ghat in Pune by a Tunnel which saves almost one hour of travel on NH4.

There are two exits for Sangli-Miraj twin cities on NH4. Both exits form a triangle with NH4 and Sangli is about 40 km from each exit.

  • Exit 1: Peth Naka - Take this exit when you drive to Sangli-Miraj from Mumbai & Pune.
  • Exit 2: Shiroli Naka - Take this exit when you drive to Sangli-Miraj from Bangalore.
