A update between Devanahalli and Nelamangala.
Devanahalli- Dodaballapur is good.Road widening is happening at some places.
Dodaballapur - Nelamangala
Have to ask for directions within Doaballapur town to reach Nelamangala road.
On the way there is a lake with bund which is just a gravel for a kilometer.
After that the road is patchy with potholes on the shoulders of the road but manageable.
Nelamangala town traffic is heavy.

On the way back tried the Nice road from Kengeri side to Peenya and from there to Hebbal and Devanahalli.
Except for the railway crossing between Peenya and Hebbal it was a quite a quick drive to reach Devanahalli.
It took one hour from Kengeri entry to Devanahalli in the evening between 4-5 pm

If one is heading to Hassan, from Devanahalli I think Doddaballapur-Dobbaspet-NH48(at Solur) seems like a good option.

Route Link

I have seen a couple of posts, on this very topic. But I think many have taken the road to Shivaganga monolith at Dobbaspet and hence missed the main route. The trick here is to ask for Magadi. Because o the four lane at Solur I have seen the cross road for Magadi and Dobbaspet. Going by that this seems like a good option.

I just noticed: There is an NHDP Phase-IV plan to 4-lane Hoskote-Devanahalli-Dobbaspet section on NH207 (Contract already awarded). Now in view of this, I am just wondering how does this intersect with Peripheral Ring Road project of the Bangalore city corporation.

If indeed that section has to go with NH207 4-lane then a 4-lane from Dobbaspet-Solur-Magadi-Kengeri can be thought as a good trucker's corridor. But then thats outside city administration.

I just meant anything beyond the realm of NICE road. Hence I just guessed it as Kengeri.

This is a good move. Especially with the implementation (now cancelled) of truck ban on ORR. Would help interstate truckers for sure.

Regarding the peripheral ring road, I am not sure when the project is going to see the daylight. Remember the same discussed around a decade back.

As you mentioned the NH 207 alignment is almost same as that of peripheral ring road.

However there is a phase 2 of peripheral ring road, which is supposed to connect the Hosur road - Bannerghatta road - Kanakpura road - Mysore road -Tumkur road section. But then again, there is NICE road for that now.

Tho other thing which I cannot explain is that NH207 even today is actually very nice. Its clean wide 2-lane. Sarjapur-Hoskote-Devanahalli-Doddaballapur-Dobbaspet the whole section is fantastic as of today. But I dont see trucks as takers for these roads. So does it actually mean the trucks do want to hit the city roads?

Kengeri is inside the city, for all practical purposes. If the section that you have mentioned is developed, then the biggest cost would be the Magadi - Kengeri part. Alternatively, they could develop the existing small road from after Magadi to a point between Kumbalgod & Bidadi. But I dont think even this will help much.

I think here the need is something which would touch Hosur or beyond Hosur from NH4 without even entering Bangalore. Because it greatly adds up to city dwellers commuting to electronic city.

That would be ideal if it can happen. However in that case its not a city development program.

Even I had wondered about this. However, compared to the Devanahalli - Hoskote - Sarjapur - Hosur route I have seen more trucks take the Dabasapet - Devanahalli route.

The only conclusion I could come up with this is that, there is no RTO check-post on Sarjapur - Hosur route of NH 207. When driving down from Sarjapur towards Hosur there is only one dilapidated police check post with couple of barricades to let know that you are entering TN.
Truckers will have to drive back towards Bangalore on reaching Hosur to get the RTO permit I guess.

Yes. Maybe thats the reason. But I think it makes sense to have a trucker's corridor, given the volume south of Bangalore is very high. Current 207 is no way equipped for that unless they do a 4-lane.

Hi, coming from hyd , going to mysore, this is the route I took
Hyd --> Devanahalli--> Dodballarpur --> nice road--> mysore

there is a village between Dodballarpur --> nice road. I forgot the name. there was zero traffic and it was a pleasant drive. it was 40+ kms I think. There was a bridge that was still undergoing construction so the road was bad for like 200 mts.
q: what other alternatives we have, coming from hyd?

Wondering how you did Dodballapur - NICE Road ? Devenahalli-Dodballapur-Dobbaspet will lead you to NH 4 (Tumkur Road) and then you'd have to come back towards Bangalore city direction and then take NICE Road. Is that what you did ? If so, where is the bridge undergoing construction ? On the NH 4 ?

I suspect he has hit Nelamangala from Doddaballapur and from here its hardly 8-10 kms towards the city before you hit NICE road.

If they can improve Doddaballapur-Nelamangala SH, it would be great bypass. It already is but for the rough section. This would make it ideal to head to the Hassan 4-lane from Devanahalli.
