Default Re: Gundlupet to Calicut - Road Condition

The road widening works between Nanjungud- Gundulpet- Moolehole Checkpost is in full swing. Did a bus jorney from Calicut few days back. The works and diversions easily caused delays of over an hour between this stretch.
If heading from Bangalore to Calicut I feel it is better to take the Bangalore- Gonikoppa- Kutta- Manandavadi- Calicut route or Bangalore- Gonikoppa- Irrity- Tellicherry- Calicut route. The Hunsur- Gonikoppa road work is almost done, just few kms near the Anechowkur forest checkpost is pending and work is in full swing.
Any alternative routes will be a welcome before folks head out during the summer holidays to Kerala via Calicut .

The best alternative (for day time travel) would be Mysore-Handpost-Bavali-Kattikulam-Manathavady-Kalpetta Calicut.

Described in detail in this post in the Bangalore-Calicut thread by bhpian binand. Looks like this is the way to go till that road work completes.

The lack of rest stops after Mysore till you enter Kerala is a concern.

Has anyone travelled on the Malavalli-Bannur-Mysore road recently ? Any update on whether the road widening works are complete on that stretch ?
