This is good. I checked in Google maps and its listed. So this is where the NICE road actually starts ? The ORR point near PES college?

Tried this road over the last weekend. The access to NICE road from Bannerghata road is pathetic and can be easily missed, by folks who are not persistent enough to find this road.

But needless to say, the road is very nice.

For destinations like Chennai/Pondicherry/Trichy/Dharwad, my MapmyIndia Lx130 Navigator suggests NICE road only both for exit and entry [from my home in Basaveshwara Nagar] in the fastest mode setting.

Thanks guys!
I have to go to that Sanjay Khan resort (Golden Palms or something) somewhere there. I guess i will need to turn left onto Tumkur road when i get off NICE.

Hi Amit,

Once you reach Tumkur road from NICE expressway within few km you can find Himalaya factory/office on left side and take U turn immediately and again immediate left reaches to Golden Palms within few km drive.

Ravi.

Guys what about the condition of this road from Electronic City to Bannerghatta Road?
Last year this stretch was still incomplete, and there were diversions through some villages.
And if I join from Bannerghatta road, is there any big sign board indicating turn to NICE road? I'll be starting quite early in the morning, so there will be hardly anyone around to ask for directions!

If you are starting early, then I guess you enter NICE road from the Bannerghata road. The roundabout still exists if you are coming from Hosur road. I did the full section from Mysore road to Hosur road. It also depends from where you are starting. If its around Koramangala/Indiranagar area, then Bannerghatta entry would be fine for early morning. If you are on the Hosur road itself, I think, the detour on the NICE road should be OK.

Its quite noticable , as you come on Bannerghatta road , you cannot miss the right to NICE .
Hosur road to Mysore road is OK except for a small stretch , where you take a detour to the right just before gottigere , road is bad but still very much doable with a car .
