Yes, checked on it. Considering the Kumbakonam - Vridhachalam - Attur Salem route for return journey. 50kms extra, but looks like it will be worth it given the road conditions are excellent.

Please check with the locals before taking this Kumbakonam-Virudhachalam road. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the entire stretch of 140 km from Kumbakonam was being relaid and I repented taking this road( Dec 2015). It consumed almost half a day to reach Virudhachalam.

Kumbakonam-Vridhachalam Bypass-Veppur-V.Koot Road-Attur-Salem and beyond, all the way the roads are in very good condition. Nothing to worry.

You can also refer to Bangalore-Kumbakonam thread.

The Kumbakonam thread has been updated with latest condition - all good
Please check that thread for details on the bypasses/route information.

What is the best option at the moment considering the road conditions? Let me know if anyone has done it very recently. If you plot the route on google maps, that will be really helpful.
Bangalore-Salem-Namakkal-Musiri-Trichy to Thanjavur should be the best option. As regards the route to Trichy, you will get more details in the Bangalore-Trichy thread

Thank you folks for the suggestions.
I have more or less finalized my routes. Not taking the Karur route as I am fine skipping the NH and drive through the other options given.

I did this a week back and thought I will come back and give a quick update. Went through the exact same route that I posted above, and that was a perfect drive.

No issues with any part of it. Salem - Attur - Vridhachalam in good condition, with 4 lanes and intermittent switching to 2 lanes. Vridhachalam - Jayamkondam was excellent. Only Thiruvaiyaru to Namakkal via Kallanai was slightly rough at some stretches, but nothing to be worried at all.

Just in case if anyone is interested, you may read a quick travelogue that I have written on this drive-
