Yes, many speed breakers.

Btw, what time are you planing. Expect a lot of lorry traffic in early morning and after evening.

You can try this also.

Once you reach Dommasandra, take the right and go ahead for a KM. Then take the right [Marked by saying Ebenezer school something]

This road goes all the way to Chandapura. A nice 2 lane road with lesser traffic. Except for the last 200m where it meet chandapura.

Thanks ampere, luvurride & mjothi. Appreciate the quick response.

Travelled yesterday on Varthur - Sarjapur - Attibele road. Road is good with lots of speed breakers as mentioned above. Some 100-200 Mtrs stretch is bad (moon surface) near Attibele and you have to pay the 20 Rs toll at Attibele if you cross the border.

On the Dommasandra - Chandapura road, there is a railway crossing but only few trains pass this route so may not be much of a wait.

Default Sarjapur to Whitefield

I'd like to explore options other than going thru Varthur for this route.

CAn anyone comment on the road condition on NH207 (via Chikka thirupathy road)?

Thanks!

NH 207 is in good condition, you can check the "On Bypassing Bangalore" thread for more details.
You can take NH 207 from Sarjapur and get off at Hoskote on Old madras road (NH 4), then turn left on OMR and again left to whitefield where it will go via Sai Baba ashram and reach Hoodi circle.

Great! What about the Muthusandra road? That's about half the distance. (Sarjapur to Muthusandra, then left towards Muthusandra hospital toward Ajgondhalli Rd and on to Immadahalli?

The NH207 is smooth and traffic free mostly. The only choke is at hope farm junction or sometimes at the Mayura bakery junction just before hope form if you are travelling from Sarjapur to Whitefield.

However, the distance would be much longer. Where are you starting from? You could also take the traffic free road next to Sarjapur bus stand that connects you to Varthur police station directly.

You're mistaking SH35 for NH207. NH207 does not pass through whitefield, but outside it and reaches Hoskote. SH35 hits OMR at a juntion where you have to turn right to go to Hoskote.

I'm taking kids back from Indus to Whitefield. I expect Varthur to be really slow because of the festival. Was hoping to bypass it. Thinking of taking the road next to the bus-stand in Sarjapur that runs north towards Muthusandra and instead of going towards Varthur - keep going towards Immadahalli and then cut back towards Whitefield (bypass Hope farm junction by going on Hagadur road towards Form Value mall.

Default Re: Route Info? Bangalore: Whitefield - Hosur Road

Report: the route took me about 35min. The road is not great, but low traffic. Some sections were being made broader and were just gravel which I prefer to narrow potholed roads. Other sections were just compacted red clay which was ok as long as it is dry. It was threatening to rain which got me worried, but it only drizzled so it was ok. In a few months it will be better.

No, not 207. The route I took was: turn left after Sarjapur bus stand and head towards muthusandra. After kamadhenu farms, the road is in the process of being widened.
