friends, im returning via shirdi - pune next monday. i ll be highly obliged if you can guide me on a route that will allow me to get off NH4 and straight onto the Chennai highway without touching bangalore. i know that you have given some route tips but the problem is that its difficult to locate it without landmarks so kindly let me know with landmarks where i get off NH4 and cut through to chennai

If you want to bypass bangalore then use the following (as I said already) but you hae to forget GQ, you have come back to NH4 again:

Tumkur - Dobbspet - Dodaballapur - Yelahanka - near Hoskote

Till Yelahanka I have already told you. From yelahanka till NH4 near Hoskote pls PM lukeskywalker,he does that often.

Thanks for the warning, what you went through was not a pothole but a patch which has been cut open on the flyover for repair, guys who come down beyond Hosur while taking the flyover need to watch out for this. Avoid the right lane at any cost as this patch is bang on top of the flyover and there is no marking done to warn motorists.
