Yes, it is after the BETL toll gate, you can switch to service road which is on the left side of BETL and pass by Infosys and reach HP gate signal, continue on left to enter NICE Road after this signal.

There are enough signage that will indicate the entry for BETL. If you ignore them, you will easily proceed ahead towards the EC Phase 1 Junction.

In simple words, you can never get onto BETL unless you pay the toll .

Proceeding either from the left hand side or right hand side of the BETL toll will take you straight to EC Phase -1 Junction. Based on whether you are waiting on the Service road or the main road (for the signal to turn green), you head ahead onto service road from this junction and soon you will see an entry ramp for NICE Road.

Hi All,

Need a small route guidance.

I am planning for a trip from Electronic City to a village near Davangere. I have to pickup a couple of guys from near the PES College NICE Road exit.

Wanted to know which exit should I take so that I can get out of Bangalore the fastest and onto the highway considering that and the name of the exit too please.

Thanks
J

Hey J - Use the NICE road from e-City and traverse the entire NICE road, all the way to TUMKUR road exit. I am assuming that your friends will be waiting at the Nice road and you don't have to get out at PES and get back again on NICE after picking them ?

As Krishna has mentioned, NICE Road from E-City to Tumkur road is no brainer for your need.
However, if you have to pick your friends from near PES college, then you have to exit and re-enter NICE Road. Ask your friends if they can meet you at NICE Road-Tumkur road exit, will be easier on logistics.

Take the PES Exit (also known as Link Road Exit), Pick your friends from the exit which is next to PES anyway and then continue on Outer Ring road instead of getting back to NICE. It will take 20 Minutes max for you from this exit to hit Tumkur road at Goreguntepalya.

In fact, you need not even hit GG Palya signal and just take left soon after you descend from Flyover at Rajkumar Samadhi and then take next right to reach a T Junction (with Tumkur Road) where as soon as you turn left, you will see entry for NBTL. One road from here.

Taking NICE back again is hardly doing to save time, unless you are doing this at peak morning and evening hours.

I have been using this road to hit Tumkur road from EC for almost a year now and cam vouch for the timings mentioned.

Origin : PESIT Exit (NICE/ORR Intersection)
Destination : Tumkur Road after one enters it soon after exit from NICE

Query: NICE Road - Bangalore-20170513-15.16.48.png

You will notice that "Similar ETA" route is via NICE and one highlighted in Blue is what I am suggesting. Both take same time as the ORR from here till Tumkur road is well managed with just one break in the median near Laggere (beware of Speed Interceptors).

Karnataka Government has told NICE to roll back toll hike in 7 days or face legal action
News Source
Quoting from the source above
Quote:
The state government has issued a notice to Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE), directing it to withdraw the recent hike in toll on its peripheral and link road within seven days or face legal
action.

The notice issued by the Public Works Department dated July 7 stated that the move by NICE, the promoter of Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project, to hike the toll is “illegal” as it is done without obtaining the government’s permission and also at a time when proceedings of a writ petition is pending before the Karnataka High Court.

The department said that the hike should be withdrawn within seven days from the receipt of the notice. “Failure to do so within the stipulated time will constrain us to initiate appropriate action in accordance with law or have recourse to remedies available to us under the Frame Work Agreement,” the notice
stated.

The company recently increased the toll by 14% to 25 % on 41 km of peripheral road and 9.1 km of link road.
Not sure if it will happen or not because even the last time when the toll prices were increased in 2013, the State Government had ordered a roll back but that didn't happen

And this happens . They obviously didn't heed to it:

Quote:
The promoter of the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project has refused to roll back the recent hike in toll on its peripheral and link roads in Bengaluru.

In a nine-page reply to the notice issued by the state government recently, Nandi Economic Corridor Enterprises Ltd (NECEL) has refuted the government's argument that enhancement of toll prices is against the project's Frame Work Agreement (FWA), including the Toll Concession Agreement (TCA). The right to collect and revise toll is not connected to converting the existing bituminous road into concrete road, the company said.

The Public Works Department (PWD), which is the nodal department for implementing the project, had issued a notice on July 7 to the company, asking it to withdraw the hike in toll within seven days or face legal action. The PWD had termed the toll hike illegal as it was done without obtaining its permission. The company recently increased the toll by 14% to 25% on 41 km of peripheral road and 9.1 km of link road.

The PWD had said that the promoter cannot increase the toll rates when a case pertaining to the default notice is still pending before the Karnataka High Court. The department had last year issued the default notice to the company for not developing concrete roads as per the FWA and asked it to rectify the lapse within 180 days. But the company subsequently obtained a court stay in this regard.

PWD Additional Chief Secretary M Lakshminarayana said the department has decided to seek legal opinion on the reply given by the company. The government will take appropriate action based on the legal opinion, he added.

No more MOMOE wallet from 2018.

I got a message from sandsun7 that NICE will stop using MOMOE from Dec 21st and I shared the same news with colleagues when one of them said that the App itself was shutting down and it's not allowing any wallet recharge. I tried the same and got this:

Query: NICE Road - Bangalore-screenshot_20171211100331.png

So those of you who have enough balance and using it on NICE road, either use that here so or look elsewhere and exhaust the same before 31st.

Further to this, the NICE toll operator said they are coming up with a new tag service, most possibly similar to the fastag. He said it would be operational tentatively by 20th December. He doesn't know much details.
Momoe was working flawlessly all this while saving us from carrying cash everyday. Hopefully the new system would work similar to fastag and would avoid the hassle of having to stop and take receipt every time. Considering the amount of toll they collect, it is high time they invest in technology and come out with such a system.

Kanakpura - Malavalli - Bannur would be your best bet given that its a long weekend. If you plan to start early i.e before 6 am, then you can still stick to Maddur - Mandya - Mysore but for your return, you will be better off taking Malavalli - Kanakpura.

Thanks! I have planned for an early start (say 6'ish) on 25th and planned to cover Chamundi Hills, Brindavan Gardens and some saree shopping.

Would Nice road be a good option? Also, how are the roads? Are they in good shape?

Roads are all good but the issue will be traffic. IMHO, the places that you have listed will all be super crowded and you might not really end up having a fun time. If shopping is the main agenda, then I would suggest that you drop chamundi & brindavan gardens.

Edit: If you are driving to Mysore only for shopping silk sarees, then I am sure there are enough and more options in Bangalore itself.

Took NICE road after a long long time and found one difference. The speed limits are changed back to 80KMPH from 120KMPH. Any idea what made that happen?
Last time I was too happy to see 120KMPH since could really fly well beyond 100KMPH early in the morning but now again need to make sure to obey the law wherever and whenever possible
