Planning Bangalore - Thrissur this Monday. Self + wife, planning to leave about 5 am. Torn between the three options of classic NH7/NH47 all the way, NH7 /NH47 and deviate off at Chengapalli to try and bypass CBE, and Sathyamangalam to the L&T bypass. Only problem is I'm not familiar with the area, so 2 and 3 pose the risk of wrong turns / getting lost. Also seems like a lot of small-town transit there. Any comments.
Also, can someone educate me on the checkpost status between Karnataka and TN, and TN and Kerala on these routes. Need to carry a case of liquids for which I have some paperwork, but was wondering what the hassle quotient was.
Thanks

modthomas, Same here. I am doing thrissur - bangalore tommorow. Planning to take the classic NH47 - NH7 since I know the route by heart. I wont be having the time to explore other options tommorow. And regarding checkpost, they dont stop private cars at walayar nowadays after the election. So I think it wont be a problem.

Absolutely correct. I drove from Bangalore to Kochi by NH 209/47 on 22 April 2011 during day time. Nobody stopped me at the inter-state check posts. In the return journey on 24 April 2011, I crossed the inter-state check posts at Kumily/Attibele in the night. Again, nobody bothered me.

Its all here:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...erala-524.html (All Roads to Kerala)

For shortest time of commute:

- Leave Bangalore early. Take the 4-lane.
- Bangalore-Hosur-Salem-Avinashi-Mangalam-Palladam-Pollachi-Palakkad

CBE-Walayar-Palakkad is quite rough. See the thread mentioned above.

Plan to start by 5:00 am from bangalore.

Driving alone.

Which is the best route option with shortest commute time as I have to be in Palakkad max by 2:30 PM.

Bangalore - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Salem - Coimbatore - L&T bypass - Palakkad.

I don't suppose there's an alternate route that takes you faster. I use this route while coming from Chennai every fortnight. You'll reach Palakkad well before 2:30 PM with a 5 AM start.

The only bottleneck in this entire route is the L&T bypass.

My post above yours, even through 3 years old, is still valid.

Look at the Kerala thread for the updates.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route...erala-690.html.

As Gannu mentioned, 4-lane option of NH7-NH47 still is the fastest. Start early to beat the traffic. Salem and L&T bypass are the bottle necks.
