Default Neyveli - Mysore: Best Route?

Can someone let me know the best route from Neyveli to Mysore?

I am seeing two different routes (one via Mettur and the other via Sathyamangalam) - which one is better?

I am not aware of full routes, but sathyamangalam is the bus route and should be better in terms of road condition(i know from the karnataka side). If you are aware of TN side conditions, take this route.

Google says that the difference between these two routes, is just a few minutes, so I'd prefer one that is sympathetic to my Civic

Yes exactly, that is why i suggested you even if it is 30-40 km extra.
I wanted to ask what car you would be driving.

kollegal(mettur option) is village roads on the karnataka sides, so is rough. but can do in my swift in 40-60kmph. Civic i assume has more chances of scraping the underbody

Guys I have a similar route query - Bangalore to Neyveli.

I see 2 routes - via salem and the other via Thiruvanamalay. I know the road to Thiruvanamalay is pathetic, so I would drive down via Salem. Can somebody update me about the road conditions from Salem to Neyveli?

I'll be driving down on the weekend before Christmas in my Gen 1 Verna. Please help!

So, look forward to seeing a blazing Purple Civic on the way

Salem route anytime!

Only question: How is Attur-Vridhachalam SH?
I would prefer the 4-lane all the way till Ulundurpet and then take the bypass.

Yes, ampere, based on your earlier advice I plan to take this route.

No idea about the Attur - Vriddachalam section.

If you see the map, the Vriddachalam-Veppur-V.Koot road (in dotted red in the below pic) would be the shortest route from Vriddachalam to Athur and beyond.

I had used that road more than a year ago : the Veppur-V.Koot road stretch was in very bad shape, and it was being relaid completely (old road completely removed, raised by layers of gravel and then the bitumen layer).

It would be interesting to know the current condition of that road. If this road is ready, then it would be the shortest (and usable ) route between Neyveli and Athur.

That is exactly what even I am curious to know. But it you see distance coverage, there is hardly a difference of 20km between the two options.

Thats when I thought it might not be that big a difference using the SH, as you get to be on 4-lane most of the time.

True, but I never miss an opportunity to drive on the regular 2-lane roads, which are in good condition. The driving experience can be enjoyed in a different way .

Update on Salem - Neyveli route.

I drove from Neyveli to Bangalore via Salem on 17th March. I took the Veppur - V Koot road. Road conditions are absolutely good and is a pleasure to drive on this route. This is THE route to be taken from now on if anyone wants to drive from Bangalore to Neyveli.
