Default Maratahalli to Tumkur

Hello,

Please guide me on reaching tumkur from maratahalli.
I basically want to avoid the pathetic roads from Yeshwantpur to Nelamangala.
Please let me know the alternative road and its condition.

Your best bet would be to get from Marthalli to Hosur road via Hosa road, and take the NICE road from there all the way to Tumkur road.

Last time I checked, one side of the Bannerghatta Road was not complete, also you will still suffer the Pathetic NH4 between NICE road - Tumkur Road junction

Cheers,

Rajan

but IMO the road are not that much bad that you cannot motor on that. It depends at what time you will be on that stretch. If it is full traffic time then even a small hump/pot hole will disturb you and you start cursing. So avoid those timea nd try to clear that patch when the road is with least traffic. Whole world travels on that road it is in ok condition when you see many other road not even 50% of what it is now or else use the road mentioed by "Patchyboy"

Deepak, take ORR -Hebal -Yelahanka - Doballapura - take left at the railway junction - Dobspete - this will touch the hiway. this place is very close to Tumkur.

i think this is the best route.

+1 . This is the best route to avoid Nelamangala. But be beware of loads of unmarked road bumps most of the way.

I would suggest ORR - Hebbal - Peenya - NH4. The time, you would be travelling between Peenya and Toll plaza after Nelamangala would not be crowded so much. I have done 4-5 trips till toll plaza last week that is from yeswantapur. Roads are ok now, they have patched up some major potholes. Once you reach tollplaza, you are the king on the road.
I would avoid the doddaballapur road as mentioned by @bullinb, lot of unmarked road humps.

Hello sir - here we meet (virtually) again after JC Road earlier this week
Get onto Hosur Road, don't take the BETL elevated tollway, instead go below and after 4/5 signals you will see PES college on service road. Here, get onto NICE Road and pay the toll for Tumkur Road. You will drive on NICE Road till it ends at Tumkur Road!
(I assume Harlur road is the one near HSR Layout)
Hope this helps.

It depends on the time of the day. Anytime on Saturday post 12 PM in Blr is madness. Looks like people who use public transport on weekdays also tend to take their rides out on Saturday.

If you are leaving early on Saturday, you can cut across the city.
HSR layout -Koramangala - Audgudi - St Marks Rd - GPO - Cauvery Theatre - Sadshivnagar Police Station - Yeshwantpur flyover - Tumkur Road Toll.

Cheers
