Default re: Bangalore to Trichy : Route Queries

Recently done Kulithalai-Trichy stretch and most of the potholes are done now. Generally, the road is good to drive now except few bad stretches and construction work going on in some place.

@chandras, could you please give us more info on this route.
Namakkal - Pavithram - Thathaiyangar Pettai (T.Pettai) - Musiri.
details like no. of kms, how much time.

so, we can have Namakkal-T.Pettai-Musiri-Kulithalai-Trichy an option as well, given the roads are good.

Also, would be nice if someone can update the condition of Salem-Thuraiyur road

Salem Thuraiyur update
Thuraiyur-Thammampatti-Vazapadi-Salem route.
Thuraiyur-Thammampatti average route one side of the shoulder of the road is being done up with concrete.
Thammampatti-Vazapadi good road but too many curves cannot maintain good speed.
Vazapadi-Salem four lane in progress and lot of deviations.

So looks it would be better to go via Namakkal-Thuraiyur, rather than Vazapadi.

Did this route yesterday (BLR-Salem-Namakkal-Thuraiyur-Trichy) and no new updates.
Was travelling around 3 AM in Namakkal-Thuraiyur-Trichy and very less traffic. Can do some good speeds in this route.
Still remains a safe bet compared to Namakkal-Musiri-Trichy.

Thanks for the update @nfsfreak. Hope the road conditions haven't changed too much on this route. Would you be able to comment if it has improved or deteriorated or is it pretty much the same

May do it on 11th Feb.

Cheers

its pretty much same in my last two visits (17th Jan & 5th Feb).

Definitely a much better choice than Namakkal-Thottiyam-Musiri-Trichy stretch where there are literally no roads for about 30+ kms.

Started from Bangalore (Sahakar Nagar) at 6 AM.

A2B Chinnar- 7.15 AM
(30 min break)

NH7 till Namakkal - 10.30 AM

From Namakkal took the Thuraiyur road. Except for 5 kms in middle near T.Pettai(Thatha Iyengar pettai or something) roads are very good.

Got stuck at Tollgate bridge (Salem-Trichy bridge) for around 30 minutes due to some traffic jam.

Reached Malaikottai at 12.15 PM. But took me 1 hr to reach Femina hotel from there. Trichy traffic is a nightmare. I initially thought mapmyindia is taking me on a ride, but luckily it was perfect. Phew!

Thanks to Team BHP for the Namakkal-Thuraiyur-Trichy route

P.S. Very funny sounding village names enroute. E.g. erumai patti reddy patti, chinna mudalai patti(Near salem), reddythotti patti kaaLi patti etc

Not very sure. It was above a railway line.

hotel gajapriya is a pretty decent one right near the central bus stand. you can also try hotel ramyas which is also near the same place.

I just returned from a week end tour from Bangalore to Kumabakonam & back, as I had seen in this foram and even the locals there had said that the musri road was in bad condition and had to go via Thurauyur, however since we were traveling at night this road has become quite horrible & the directions not clear, on our return we wanted to take our chances along musri road & very pleased to see it is newly done & in good condition, we were on the look out for the infamous bad stretch along the way and we were already at Nammakal, then on its GQ.
will post detail travel log later, just a quick road update for others.
