Default Road Conditions - Banglore-Palamaner-Kupam-Krishnagiri-Banglore

I'm on off today and am planning to go for a roundtrip drive in an hour or twos time. Any updates on road condition would be great.

Hi Unni, I had been to Tirupati about a fortnight ago, so can tell you about road till Palamner.
The road is good but very slow due to 6 laning after hoskote, Mulbagal byepass is good and u can do that stretch fast.

Not sure about route to Kuppam though.
Have a nice and safe trip.
Regards,
Hari.

Agree with Lukeskywalker, I did it last week on 15th August, nothing much has changed.

If possible plan to avoid returning in evening to Bangalore, you need to be extra careful because of the roadwork and oncoming high beams and if your luck shines it may rain adding to the woes.

Thanks Hari and Deepak. Will watch out for the roadwork. I will be returning to Bangalore early morning, since its a "drive" rather than any sight-seeing trip.

I know that the road from Krishnagiri side to TN border is good, but no idea of conditions after that. But avoidable at night - no faciliies, hardly any villages (have been on TN side), and may also be unsafe.

I did a different route, which incidentally you suggested!!! B'lore-Nelamangala-Channarayapatna-KRpet-Shrirangapattana-B'lore.

Thanks Kumarji.

Not sure how it is now. During CB Naidu days, we used to do that stretch regularly for our granite business purposes. Bangalore - Kolar - KGF - Kuppam - Krishnagiri - Bangalore
Kolar KGF Kuppam stretch is bad. In KGF, there is old british cemetery which has some really old graves. But not maintained. Suitable for a heritage spot. Kuppam Krishnagiri is good road. At one sharp curve, I have seen 2 accidents in same day. Rsting spots include Kamat before kolar, motel in Kuppam, TN Tourism motel in Krishnagiri
Best regards

Any update on how the road between Krishnagiri and Kuppam is?

I did some research for Bangalore - Tirupati route, to avoid Kolar (Bad roads) and found that one can take this route. Bangalore - Krishnagiri - Kuppam - Chitoor - Tirupati. Road between bangalore and krishnagiri is very good and so are the roads between chitoor to tirupati. How is it between krishnagiri and chitoor?

Any tips?

Also, maybe not the right place to ask. But how is the bangalore-chintamani-madanapalle-tirupati route? Good roads?

A fortnight ago, I drove from Kuppam to Krishnagiri on NH 219 and the road was very good. I could do Madanapalle to Krishnagiri in about 4 hours via Palamaner, V. Kota and Kuppam. I know that the road from Palmaner to Chittor is excellent.

About NH 219 -- there was very little traffic during the day, and the highway goes over hilly terrain before and after Kuppam. From Kuppam to Palamaner, lots of shady trees and not many villages. This road would be good to drive on in the day, but at night, it could be deserted and therefore better avoided.
