If you see the initial few posts of this thread, its precisely that way, with the title. But later all posts have become a query response based. And yes NICE is only good (best) option to go from NH4 (Tumkur Road) to NH7 Hosur road.

Gear-ge, if you are transiting from NH-7 (Hyderabad - Bengaluru) to NH-7 (Bengaluru-Salem-Dindigul to the turn off for Kodaikanal), I feel there are better and shorter routes to bye-pass than go via Nelamangala and NICE road.

I drive from Hyderabad to Kodaikanal a couple times a year and have used the route described in the following link:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ml#post1711006 (DRIVOBLOG® |Maiden Drive with HVK (too tempestuous to be Telecasted LIVE!))

This used to be a great route - and I have been able to do Devanahalli to Hosur (about 60 kms) in less than two hours. However, over the years, the traffic has increased around the Whitefield area so much that I find going on the longer NH-207 faster now a days, especially if I am transiting during traffic hours.

You can use NH-207 from Devanahalli to Hosur via Hoskote and Sarjapur. I have done Devanahalli to Hosur in less than two hours on this route. There were a couple of sections where the road twists and turns in Villages and is not signposted - so when in doubt, the best is to ask the locals.

To take either of these routes, you branch off NH-7 at Devanahalli, well before the airport exit (you turn left off NH-7 as you see a Jain temple on a hillock on your right).

You can also do:

Devanahalli-Hoskote : NH207

And then head to Malur instead of continuing on NH207. And at Malur take the road to Baglur. Distance wise its the same. And the Hoskote-Malur is much less twisty like the NH207.

Took Bellandur - Sarjapur - Bagalur - Hosur route last Saturday morning. Since the drive was around 06.00 AM there was no much traffic.

Sadly road work around Sarjapur does not seem to have progressed since my last trip some in January.

This bypass is pretty much needed. Big buses and trucks tend to take that small village road, which is quite scary. Its creating havoc not just for the commuters, but also the local dwellers.

Great update on Devanahalli-Doddaballapur-Dobbaspet-Guddemaranahalli by @Night_Hawk.

Quoting the post here:

Quote:
Started HYD at 5.00 AM on 03.05.2015 and reached Chikmagalur ( Hotel Gateway) by 5.00 PM. There few very rough / under construction patches on SH3 between Shivganga and Gudemaranhalli.

I took the Gudemaranhalli- Hassan- Belur- CKM route. Excellent roads through out; and the surroundings are very scenic and lush green. Innumerable food joints are available on either side.
While returning to Hyderabad on 06.05.2015, took the conventional bypass route i.e. via Nelamanga, Doddaballpur and Devanahalli.

Brief add on for folks intending to drive to Manikyadhara falls:
The road from Baba Budangiri shrine to the falls is quite narrow. There are no guard rails, thus exposing you and the car to sheer drop-offs from the cliffs, which obviously gets worse as you go farther and farther towards Manikyadhara. Every time another car or jeep came in the opposite direction, my heart would be in my mouth with a “will we or won’t we” feeling. A couple of kms from Baba Budangiri shrine, the stretch became extremely narrower and dangerous because the shoulder on the free fall side has caved-in at many places due to recent rains. Wanted to immediately return but the alternative of a U turn wasn’t simple either. Finally, aborted the plan to go further and turned right around when found a place, where cliff side of the road was widened probably as a spot for allowing passage of two vehicle
Here the post for reference:

Update on Sarjapur bye-pass

Took Hosur - Sarjapur - Bellandur route last Sunday, the bye-pass road of Sarjapur (pic in my earlier post above) is drive-able. It is yet to be surfaced, however they have leveled the road and you can drive through the same.
Hope they surface it before rains.

I took this route on April 25th but could not see the condition of the by pass as it was dark (5:30 AM). Hope it gets done before rains. In your pic, some buildings seem to be demolished. This might have been the cause of delay.
As far as I remember, the bypass was closed more than 6 months back.

Default re: Bangalore to Chintamani?

The road from Hoskote to Chintamani is fully completed. Single lane superbly marked roads, but prone for accidents. Hoskote to Chintamani is 48 kms.

Hi All,

From Budigere cross to Salem and back (during peak hour) which route shall I take.

1. Hoskote - Malur - Berigai - Sholagiri
2. Whitefield - Sarjapur - Attibelle
3. Hoskote - Malur - Bagalur - Hosur
4. Madiwala - Hosur

I used to take the option 4 from Indiranagar in the past. Recently shifted to this area and hence wondering whats the best option to avoid city traffic .

I think Option 3 will be good, especially in peak hours and you will reach Hosur near the bus stand directly bypassing the Attibele toll as well as avoiding Hosur Road traffic
Refer this earlier post by @ampere on this same page - Link (On Bypassing Bangalore). Ignore the Devanahalli-Hoskote part.

..
Hoskote - Malur - Bagalur - Hosur
+1 to NPV

Take the Hoskote-Malur-Baglur-Hosur road. Much better. Even during peak hours you will be better off. Would prefer Hosur option to Berigai option.

I would recommend option 3 as well. I had used this road a couple of months earlier and the road condition was very good and well marked. You can skip the narrow lanes of the sarjapur town as well this way.

As a resident of Whitefield, I would recommend that you avoid venturing into this area at all costs!
BWSSB has successfully managed to dig up every road here and there are huge traffic jams on most days from whitefield to varthur even at non-peak hours.
The situation inside varthur town is bad as on most days as well.

I took the option 1 a few months back on one of the long weekends to avoid Attibele-Hosur stretch. Except for a 5 km stretch from Masti to KA-TN border, the roads were good. The Malur-Masti and Berigai-Shoolagiri roads were excellent, especially the Berigai-Shoolagiri stretch was fun to drive. It took me 1.30 mins to cover the Hoskote-Shoolagiri part.

The other option to consider is Hoskote-Chikkatirupati -Bagalur-Hosur. Good roads all the way. From Chikkatirupati, turn left towards Malur and join the Hosur-Malur road.
