Default road condition of bagalur road to hosur

I wanted to check if I can goto hosur from sarjapur road through bagalur. Heard it can avoid traffic. But does anyone know of the road condition. I have to leave today at 6pm so wanted to know which route is better, the usual hosur road or via bagalur. I am headed to Salem from sarjapur road

The roads are very good except at Sarjapur town and at the Bagalur town for about 500 mtrs each. You will encounter traffic inside Sarjapur and Bagalur towns around their respective bus stands.

You may avoid Hosur town altogether and reach Shoolagiri directly if you go via the Berigai route. There are mildly broken roads enroute but will be much better than ploughing through the traffic inside Hosur town.

The Sarjapur Bagalur Hosur stretch is a peaceful stretch to drive.
You can very well avoid Peak Hour Bangalore Traffic, EC Traffic, Attibele toll and all the Hosur Construction/road widening madness.
I have been taking this road for the past few times.
The only problem is crossing Sarjapur. I assume since you have mentioned Sarjapur Road, you would be avoiding the Varthur and Gunjur stretches.
There would be a lot of tipper trucks fully (and beyond) loaded gravel for construction and some uneven stretches near Sarjapur circle.
Also post the Sarjapur bus station till the Y junction(Chikka Tirupathi/Bagalur turn off) there is a narrow road and traffic will be both sides. Crossing that around peak time might be challenging.
Once you cross that its a beautiful and winding roads to drive on till Hosur.
Drive Safe !

In addition to what everyone has said;

I would take sarjapur - bagalur stretch only if,

1) I live on and after Wipro corporate office on Sarjapur Road
2) I have a credible information that traffic in hosur road is heavy or there is any blockages or a heavy rush in attibelle toll. Check google map before starting.

Otherwise - hosur road is a breeze, considering;

1) Elevated road takes care the major pain of crossing various junctions between silk board and E-city.
2) When I came back on last Sunday from Chennai - all the fly overs were functional before, in and after hosur - which makes is pretty easy to take care of hosur traffic due to construction/ junctions.

My suggestion would be to take the Hosa/ Jail road from sarjapur road, join hosur road after bosch. From there it should be easy to get going.

Took this road today evening. You still have to take road through the town. The bye-pass road is still closed. From the looks of it, will take few months atleast.
Still better than NH7.

Been doing the daily commute from HOsur to Whitefield and back each working day last 5 years. Hosur - Bagalur - Sarjapur - Varthur - Whitefield is the daily route.

This is a very reliable route and is always done in around 1 hr 15 mins. Best case would be in an hour, worst case would be 1hr 30 mins, not more, depending on traffic jams a Varthur and Whitefield Borewell road. It takes 45 mins from home in Hosur to Varthur, and the rest of the time is taken to cross Varthur and Borewell road alone.

Sarjapur has always been a mess, and usually takes 5-10 mins to cross. Sometimes the small road inside the town can choke due to a bus or truck, but usually clears within 10 mins.

Past Sarjapur towards Bagalur-Hosur is a breeze and enjoyable drive.

I always find the Attibele route time consuming due to truck traffic on NH7 and the toll booth, even though this route is 5 kms less than the Bagalur route.

You may be better off going to Hosur on NH207 from Sarjapur and then taking the NH 7 to Shoolagiri. This thread may have more updates - here (On Bypassing Bangalore)

Bagalur-Berigai-Shoolagiri road is in good condition. Berigai-Shoolagiri is kind of desolate and better avoided after dark.
