A friend was going to Kerala, there was a road block by protestors near Nanjangud. You might face similar problems. Better try kanakpura - gundlupet - ooty

But then again I heard KA cars are being stopped at Bandipur and not allowed to cross the border.

Need to get to Calicut on Saturday. Planning to take Kanakapura-Malavalli-Kollegal-Gundulpet route to avoid Mysore road and Dasara filled Mysore area.

Any update on the road conditions on this stretch?
Also, is this route impacted by Cauvery agitations?

Regards
Rex

Chamrajnagar to gundlepet is patchy with work happening. Rest of the route is all good. At this time don't see impact due to the cauvery agitations. With dusserha season important for everyone, things should remain ok. But better to keep a watch on the news related to the same.

Unfortunately yes. KA cars are being stopped from crossing into TN at every border checkpost. In fact my friend was turned away from Hosur this morning, he drove down to Nanjangud and then again road block from agitation - although this was very unexpected.

If your friend is taking the Kanakpura route, please ask him to check with Mandya Traffic Police facebook page, they promptly post updates if any road block is present in that area. Once he crossed chamarajnagar there should not be any agitation.

Feedback shared on HVK FB group. As suggested, you might be better off taking Bagalur - Salem - Mettupalaym for the onward journey and coming back via usual route.

Thanks much for the update, Rajeevraj.
With the new development on the water sharing front, need to wait as see how the situation develops in the next couple of days. Hoping for good.

Any other cases of recent stoppage or has it subdued due to the water release and festival?

Doesn't mention anything about the Mysore Ooty route... is it applicable to all routes into TN? Anyone has first hand experience? Please update

As per the latest report appeared in The Hindu news paper, the Kakanallah checkpost in Nilgiris, remains closed.

Quote:
Unlike the Attibele checkpost, the Kakanallah checkpost in the Nilgiris remains closed. District Superintendent of Police Murali Rambha said: “We will discuss with our counterparts in Chamrajnagar and Mysuru, and decide on whether commercial traffic can be allowed from Thursday.”

Also, is it better to go via Kanakapura, chamrajanagar or take regular Mysore Road from the protests point of view in Mandya. Plan is to leave around 5am.
While going to Ooty on 2nd Oct - I took longer route i.e., Sarjapur - Bagaluru - Hosur - Salem - Avinashi - Mettupalayam - Ooty. In entire journey and my drive within Ooty was peaceful and did not see any other KA vehicle in Ooty. Everyone was curious seeing KA vehicle and asked if KA vehicles are being allowed now.

I came back from Ooty to Bangalore yesterday (5th Oct) and crossed Masinagudi/ Bandipur Border around 12 Noon. As of that moment, TN Vehicles were not being allowed into KA and vice versa. Since mine was a KA vehicle entering into KA from TN side, I was allowed after hearing someone earful from an TN cop saying I took a risk by being in TN with a KA vehicle. Took Gundlupet, Chamrajnagar, Kanakapura, Bangalore route and did not want to venture through Mandya.
