Default Hyderabad - Thanjavur (via Bangalore-Trichy)

Team,

I am planning to drive to Thanjavur from Hyderabad during the Independence Day long weekend - route - Bangalore -> Trichy -> Thanjavur.

While Hyd-Bangy road condition is well known.

I need your help in getting the latest update on the road conditions between Bangalore-Trichy and Trichy-Thanjavur.

Also, good direction to pass thru' Bangalore to hit Trichy would be very helpful.

Thank you in advance.

Blr trichy can be done in about 6-7hrs.nh7 till karur and then exit onto nh67 towards kulithalai trichy.however last 20odd kms are bad otherwise road is good.the other option is to take the namakkal musiri trichy road.if you can live with 20kms of bad road then stick to the standard nh7-nh67 combo.

Hyd blr can be done in 7hrs.blr bypass 1hr to reach attibele.attibele trichy in about 7hrs.overall a 15hr drive or maybe 16.I shall send you the maps later in the day as travelling nos

- Hyd-Bangalore : Drive only till Devanahalli. Follow NH207 all the way to Hosur. This would bypass Bangalore and also its associated tolls for NH7.

Now how to do it:
- You need to get into Devanahalli Town, look for NH207 or ask for road to Hoskote.
- At Hoskote follow the NH207 directions, cross the 4-lane NH4 and continue to Sarjapur.
- Again at Sarjpur, dont get into the village, continue on 207 towards Bagalur.
- At Bagalur, you would hit a T-junction. Take right here and this would lead you to Hosur.

Here are more details :
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...ml#post3174510 (On Bypassing Bangalore)

- Beyond Hosur, you need to endure some pains thanks for diversions till Krishnagiri.
- Beyond Krishnagiri: Drive past Salem till Namakkal.
- Here I differ from Ranjit. Dont drive till Karur. Get into Namakkal town, take the road to Thuraiyur.
- At Thuraiyur, take the road to Trichy. It would land you up on GST (Chennai-Trichy-Madurai Grand Southern Trunk road) (NH45) to the north of the city.
- Cross the river, exit out NH45 and take the 4-lane to Tanjore.

About timings :

- As Ranjit said 6-7 hours to Devanahalli
- 2 hours for another 90km to Hosur.
- 5 hours to Trichy
- 40 minutes to Tanjore

All this would be drive time. Add more breaks.

Jeet,I would suggest that you follow Ampere's bypass route to land up directly at Hosur.Saves you some money in the form of Attibele toll as well.

From thereon keep on NH7 till Namakkal.From Namakkal getonto the Thuraiyur route and all the way to Thanjavur.Map attached below fyr

http://goo.gl/maps/oFqgD

Namakkal-Thathaiyangarpatty-Kannanur-Pagalavadi-Manachanallur-Trichy Bypass-Thanjavur Highway-Thanjavur.

You can target Sree Saravana Bhavan at Krishnagiri for lunch.I wouldnt reccomend wasting time at the A2B "REFUGEE CAMP" as its a virtual fight for food there everytime.Plenty of eating options enroute.

At Kurnool,too there is a new place open though not on the highway but a very good one.http://dvrmansion.com/

Directions to the hotel http://goo.gl/maps/l1trW

The savings will be 25/- in cash on the toll and around 2/3 minutes for your turn to pay at the toll and maybe another 5/10 minutes that you will get stuck just after the toll at the checkpost.

A couple of days back the local public smashed the right side and left side toll booths is what I heard.Not sure if things have returned back to normal though.

More than the money it can worse for the time spent. Many a times you end with huge queues at that toll. Bypassing for that aspect surely helps.
