Just been via Mettur road, there are some huge potholes to watch out for, mother of all immediately after taking the shortcut, just before mettur dam to avoid the ghats.

As four laning work is going on, expect to switch sides off and on...Krishnagiri-Dharmapuri stretch has been cluster bombed, so drive carefully.
