Hi Ampere & NPV,

Thanks for the information. I have decided to halt at Hosur made bookings at Cenneys at Hosur.

Hi Deepv,

Successfully completed the trip and back in Bengaluru. Some of the sections in this route were not accessible due to traffic restrictions. Not sure if this was a one time thing or a permanent change. Unfortunately couldn't recollect the exact locations of these diversions as I am not well aware of the locations in B'Lore.

I am on the way back to Hyderabad and put up at Hilton @ Embassy Golf Links Business Park, Domlur. What would be the best route to get to NH7?

Thanks for all your help.
Shiva

This is quite surprising! You mean there were traffic restrictions on NH207? Any more details on that?

Also how was the experience at Cenney's Hosur? That would help many.

Take the airport road to MG road and there to Bellary road via Mekri Circle and on to Hebbal. Its a straight route.

Not sure of the location, will go through the map in detail and try to identify the places once I get back home and revert.

This was one of the best hotels in our entire trip. Brand new property and the staff were very friendly. It was truly a boutique hotel with spacious rooms and sparkling toilets. Kids loved the food at the hotel. Moreover, they offered a 20% discount on the quoted rates. What else can you ask for?

Thanks. Will try this route. Google maps also suggested the same route but was a bit hesitant to try this solely based on Google as it picked up some really bad sections between Rameswaram and Kanyakumari.

...

Skotha .. let us know the location details, so how bad was stretch considering these - did you spend substantial time in delays due to the restrictions?

I would be taking the route while going from Madurai to Hyderabad sometime next week, will probably have to look for suggestions on alternates.

Took the marked route to get to NH7 from Hosur at around 10am a couple of days back.
There was some road repair work that seemed to have been done in previous few days (which was continuing further in some parts) after we take left turn at Bagalur towards Sarjapur.
However at the mentioned time I didn't face much difficulty (or many diversions) possibly most work was already done.

Overall the route was OK without much traffic and delays, however the innumerable square turns would anyway keep you on leash.
Took me about an hour and a half, I suppose it is still better than getting caught in indeterminate jams going further interior to city.

Can you please elaborate what those 'square turns' are? Are they confusing junctions?

If you see the contours of NH207, there are many places where it turns 90 degree, even when there road going ahead straight. You need to careful at such cases.

1. At Sarjapur, you enter a fork. You almost needs to do a U to be on NH207. Else you would enter Sarjapur town.
2. At another place like Dunnasandra, where the highway does a 90 degree turn.

As Ampere pointed out at times turns might get confusing on this stretch, so its handy to keep GM running and follow it diligently.
Roadside markings are pretty fine though.

Besides those major turns/points, the road in general doesn't run straight for long distances, there are quite a bit zig-zags going around so you don't get to press the peddle for too long.

Hi deepv,

Sorry for the delay in responding. Was busy at the office and didnt get a chance to log into Team BHP.

I checked the map again and I think the diversions were near Hoskote. Again, not too sure as we were too busy looking at Google re-calibrating the routes.

1.5 Hour is good. It took me more than 2 hours to get to Hosur.

Thanks

Yes its very handy to keep Google maps running. Very useful indeed.

1.5 or 2; it still is a very good option to use. Simply because you just dont get to see the horrible Bangalore traffic, state border and and an even worse toll booth.

Chikkatirupathi to Siddanahalli small stretch of 4kms has a fresh coat of thar.
Siddanahalli to Tamilnadu border has potholes occasionally. From Bagalur it is wide road upto Hosur.
Daytime traffic and narrow roads at Bagalur town but was never delayed due to traffic.
Daytime usually takes 1hr 30mins.to cover from Devanahalli to Hosur

I think overall, its a brilliant option to bypass Bangalore from north to south. Some have even tried Hoskote-Malur-Berikai-Shoolagiri. But its a bad option as per me. NH207 to me is the safest and easier option. But again as you said, if one is driving at night, he needs to be very cautious thanks to the blind turns.

I once tried Hoskote -Malur-Bagalur-Hosur.
Hoskote to Malur is bad lots of potholes and traffic also is quite high.
Malur-Baglur is okay and traffic is sparse.


Malur-Masti-Berigai-Schoolagiri.

Malur to Masti was really bad that was an year back don't know the conditions now.

Masti-Berigai-Schoolagiri.

Road conditions are good but towns of Berigai and Schoolagiri very narrow roads and invariably traffic jam proned in the day as well as in the evening time.

Bagalur -Berigai-Schoolagiri

Bagalur - Berigai pot holed and heavy lorry traffic.

So finally summing up Hosur - Baglur-ChikaTirupathi-Hoskote-Devanahalli
This is the best and saves a lots of time and fairly decent roads.
Especially on long drives you tend to save time and need good road conditions.
Most of the time I cross this stretch in the night and never had any issues .Only for the sharp turns and a railway gate close to Koralur in this route and have not wasted more than 10 mins at this railway gate.
