Default Route to Hosur!

Hi guys,
I am planning to go to Banglore from Hyderabad tomorrow (June 16). My destination is Hosur. I would like to know if there is any route that leads me to Hosure without going into banglore city. Waiting for advices.
Thanks in advance.

Do This
1. At Chik Ballapur(NH7) take to NH207 and reach hosakote
2. Stay on NH207 and merge into NH7 again at atibele

Yes, you can avoid Blr city traffic by taking a left at Hebbal flyover into the outer-ring-road.

This road, though you will be circling the city, will connect you to Silk Board junction. A left here will see you in Hosur road which will cross Electronic city (on the right) and take you to Hosur.

I am not sure if a better route exists.

I would suggest taking the outer ring road near Hebbal flyover to Hossur Road (you will cut across old madras Road , Airport road and Sarjapur road and then touch Hossur Road). This route will give you an opportunity to have a rest and a snack/lunch/dinner at one of the good restaurants on the outer ring road.

See map in the link- Bangalore Map | India Google Satellite Maps

If you are not interested in food/rest then route given above is the alternative route.

I do not know about the state of blr traffic now(2 years vintage you see), but if its gotten worse make sure you do not reach BLR before 11pm. or after 7am.
Outer ring road is not much of a ring road, and at the point where you go towards electronics city you get big jams.
There was some elevated road being built. Is it still being built or they scrapped the idea?
If the NH207 is a good road(no idea about the current road state) then its actually a good option to completely skip BLR traffic, an attractive option if you reach BLR somewhere in evening.

tsk's choice is fine, however the road from Hoskote to Attibele might be bad. If you are reaching Bangalore anytime during peak hrs (8-10 am, 5-8 pm) I strongly suggest you take tsk's route. Outer ring road /electronic city area is congested like mad during peak hours.

@tsk1979, alabjarus, DieselFan, csentil
Thank you all for the information.
So, I see two options.

1. Chikballapur-hosakote-attibele-hosur
2. Hebbal-flyover-outerrinig road-hosur.

I would like to know which is the better option. Is the hosakote-attibele road that bad?

regards,

Hosakote road passes through Sarjapura and is a national highway, so I doubt it will be as bad as Bangalore Peak hour traffic.
If you reach bangalore late at night you will have to survive the Manic BLR HYD bus and truck traffic. It is very tiring and frustrating to drive on the NH7 with buses and trucks blinding you.
Start morning 5am, reach bangalore early evening, divert to Hosakote and move over to hosur.

Road is ok, but as tsk said, its better to brave bad roads then mad bangalore traffic. You will definitely save time even if u drive at slow speeds. Saves you a lot of irritaition.

Mostly I will start early morning and would like to reach banglore by evening. Then, I have only the Chikballapur-hosakote-attibele option.
Thank you so much for the help guys .

If u can reach Hebbal flyover in afternoon (between 12-2PM), I suggest u use the ring road that will be faster... otherwise take the route via NH207 which is clearly marked when u reach Chikballapur main junction...

The traffice is mad like anything from 7am to 9.30 pm( mon to sat ). Because everyday i travel from Airport road to Electronic city and the distance is 23km approximately and it is taking one and half hours for me and some times it will take two hours also.

If you can reach bangalore before or after the mentioned time , you can have a nice ride else it will be really difficult especially on Hosur road.

I suggest the other route mentioned by fellow members.

outerring road is a better option, but don't turn towards silk board, instead when you are at the sarjapur road signal on the outer ring road, instead there is a road that will directly take you close to central jail. Take this approach and this will solve your headache of traffic between silkboard and electronics city.

Guys, thank you so much for the replies. My journey postponed to next week, i.e., 23rd June. Right now, am thinking of taking the Chikballapur-Hosakote-Attibele route as suggested by some members. Would see the other possibilities and take my final decision on Friday.
