Do check this thread before you assume it is good.

I have to travel from Electronic City to Kannur. So the regular road which is not so good via Mysore-Hunsur-Gonikoppal-Virajpet to the destination is about 334Kms and the best road via Channarayapatna (NH48) - Madikeri will take around 400kms. So I was checking if this extra miles is a good to go considering the good roads and total travel time.

One of my friend traveled in the direct route yesterday. As per him the Road work beyond Gonikoppa till the turn off to Perumpadi is not yet completed. Still you can drive without much issues.

Thanks

Thanks Rajesh, if the direct route via Gonikoppa-Perumpadi is doable without much stress(I think its ~17kms) then it should be the right option. Considering Periyapatna - Siddapura route has around 12kms of bad stretch.

If you are starting from Electronic city, then all means take the Mysore road. No point taking NH48. The NH48 option comes good if you are heading to Madikeri and more of North Coorg. For south coorg it still makes sense to use the Mysore road option. Just time the drive well and it should be OK.

My usual route is via Nagarhole where the forest stretch is potholed but manageable. Last trip through Virajpet-Periyapatana was comparatively bad.
Unfortunately 'good' and 'bad' are contextual/relative in case of Bangalore-Kannur routes. I am confused now!!

It is decent only if you have a vehicle that can glide over rough roads. Don't try it with a car with soft suspension.

Heard yesterday from a relative who had used the Panathur-Bhagamandala-Madikeri route to Bangalore, that the tarmac on the forest section of Panathur-Bhagamandala has been relaid. He drives a Duster, so not sure of his impression of the road . Anyone else had a chance to take this route recently?

Jalsoor - Cherkala: Excellent
Does this mean there are now two good roads to Kasargod?

Sakleshpur-Gundya-Kukke-Jalasoor-Cherkala
Madikeri-Bhagamandala-Punathur-Kanhagad

Also how about Madikeri-Sullia-Jalasoor? Any improvements there?

Because any volatile changes to Shiradi would impede access to Kukke (as per what we are seeing now). From that point of view Madikeri-Sullia seems to be a better option ?

And if one can beat the traffic on Mysore road, then this option (despite all the humps) is a shorter distance.

Madikeri-Bhagamandala-Punathur-Kanhagad: Again the Madikeri-Bhagamandala stretch is a suspect. I'm planning to risk giving this route a try next month, i.e. if there are no updates forthcoming from others before that.

At the moment, the best route to Kasargod IMO is Sakleshpur-Gundya-Kukke-Jalasoor-Cherkala

Yes, the roads are in excellent condition all the way upto Kasargod through the route Sakleshpur-Gundya-Kukke-Jalasoor-Cherkala.

The work is in progress here. I guess it'll take couple of months for them to finish the Sampaje - Sullia stretch. Only few km of work is left out but the progress is very slow.

If the Sampaje - Sullia section is completed, then Madikeri - Sullia is the best alternative to reach Kukke. One can see a board to Kukke after crossing Sampaje but this shortcut road's condition has become really bad.

In fact more than Kukke I was wondering even this would be a better option for Kasargod. Reason? Simply because you are invariant to daily conditions on Shiradi. Even if the roads are better, any conditional change on Sakleshpur-Gundya causes a stagnancy to the whole traffic flow on that stretch.

Today is the Sullia stretch that bad, which warrants the use of Shiradi? If its a few km, can't it be tolerated to reach Jalsoor ?

The worst stretch was near Sullia which is almost repaired. If one can take the bad stretch slowly, then no issues at all. Its way better than the condition of Shiradi which was worst few months back.

If one gets habituated to reach Madikeri through Holenarasipura, then its the best route with least risk and traffic one can imagine to reach Kasargod via Madikeri.

My only thought was, if possible try to avoid the uncertainty of Shiradi. If that equates to 4-5km of bad roads, I think it would be worth it. But looks like it needs to seen how is the current Sullia condition.

If the Shiradi uncertainty factor is considered, I would say this route will be the better option. I'm again driving to Sullia this month end. Planning to take the Madikeri route and will update the latest condition here. I hope most of the work is completed by then.

One of my colleague had been to Talakaveri around 2 months back and he didn't like the Madikeri - Bhagamandala stretch. He said there are some rough patches in between but its doable.

I really do not think this route is worth the risk. Madikeri - Bhagamandala stretch is managable.But Baghamandala - Panathur stretch is terrible. I had taken this route sometime in December.
