Leaving today around 4 PM from Bangalore via Salem - Palakkad Road. Hoping to cross the border at night.
I assume sridharp77 too drove overnight so going by his review on the road conditions. Will keep posted as we cross by.

Cheers,
Rashith

OK. Maybe we can group all folks travelling south on 24th and convoy it! I am planning to leave around 5 AM.

Gears,

Thanks. What was the reason you took the Shencottai route instead on the Nagarcoil route? I heard Shencottai road was bad in sections and so takes more time.

Gears,

Going in a convoy is a good idea. Anyone going to Munnar tomorrow? I am planning to take the Udumalaippettai->Maraiyoor->Munnar route. We leave Bangalore at around 5 am and should be in Udumalaipettai by around 12 pm.

If there are other people going to Munnar tomorrow, I do not mind meeting up at Udumalaipettai and crossing the border in a convoy

2 of my friends travelled yesterday from Bangalore to Ernakulam via Walayar. They went in a private Airbus and made it home today morning without any delay or issues. The bus left madivala at 8:00 PM.

Anyway, please update us on the status and I hope your sister made it safe without any hassle.
Thanks for your concern guys, she made it safely

Situation is normal as of now at Walayar border, though state buses are not plying interstate. No problems reported yet for private vehicles or for that any vehicles for the last 2 days

myself and tomrider reached EKM by 8 in the morning today ( via salem , coimbatore , palakkad ). Travel took 9 hrs . There were no issues and the traffic was kinda less for the holiday season. Expect some delays at the Toll Plazas.

I am travelling to Thekkady with a bunch of friends on the 29th to ring in the new year. Will be watching for updates from you on the Udumalaipet-Munnar route as it is one of the alternative routes I plan to take in case Dindigul-Kumily is still shut down

Chennai - Vellore - Salem - Coimbatore - Pallakad - Thrissur.

Since we will be travelling in a TN registered car, I don't think we will encounter any problem till Coimbatore. Hoping that the trip will go peacefully without any incidents.
Update: Reached home saftely. No issues near Walayar border.
We started at 5AM from Chennai and reached Thrisssur by 3:15PM.
Palakkad - Thrissur road is pathetic.Found many KA registered vehicles and few TN vehicles heading towards Kerala.

Anybody for a Sunday morning drive (25th Dec) to Kochi? I am planning to leave by 5.30AM through Salem>Palakkad>Shornur>Thrissur>Ekm route. I hope that traffic will be thinner on Sunday compared to tomorrow.
