I think the following is the best option:

I had been to Coimbatore last week from Hyderabad.
On the way back from Coimbatore was travelling in the evening time and wanted
to get away from the traffic at Varthur and Whitefeild.
From Shoolagiri I took the turn towards Berikai.The road was good no potholes.
In Berikai I asked for directions to Hoskote.One bystander suggested via Bagalur
and Sarjapur - Chikka tirupathi-Hoskote.
Another bystander suggested via Malur so I tried this route.
Berikai-Masti is good road occasional potholes but can be negotiated.
Masti-Malur is very bad roads plenty of potholes and it took close to 45mins to cross this stretch.
Malur-Hoskote is good.

I think Hosur-Bagalur-Malur-Hoskote would have been a better route instead of Shoolagiri.

I wanted to avoid Hosur bus stand traffic below the flyover that is the reason I chose Shoolagiri.
Next time want to try Shoolagiri-Berigai-Baglur-Sarjapur-Kamanahalli-Bodonahosahalli-Hoskote.
I was caught in Varthur traffic for half an hour twice so that was the apprehension.
Any inputs of this road from Sarjapur-Kamanahalli-Bodonahosahalli-Hoskote.
On a long run from Hyderabad-Coimbatore even a half an hour traffic jams or getting held up
at toll especially a place like Krishnagiri looks like lost a lot of running time.

Very nice update @gajadonga! I think a good option can be:

Shoolagiri-Berikai-Bagalur-Sarjapur-Chikka Tirupati-Hoskote-Devanahall

- This also avoids the traffic at Varthur/Whitefield
- I don't how is the Berikai-Bagalur Road.
- Bagalur-Hoskote NH207 is very very nice.
- I dont know about Hoskote-Devanahalli. Going by the amount of tarring happening on NH207, I expect that stretch to be good too.

From Hoskote I took my regular route Mandur-Budigere-Devanahalli.
Minimal traffic excellent road throughout except for some speed breakers at Budigere town.


Berikai-Bagalur road supposed to be good and was suggested at Berigai town but I wanted to try Berigai-Malur-Hoskote.

But one thing is fore sure. The route via Malur is the shortest.
The other thing to note is how to spot the exit from NH7 at Shoolagiri. I think the best way is to take a U turn to come back to MacDonalds on the right and then take the first left.

I think thats the road which ascend up. Can you confirm that @gajadonga?

While coming from Krishnagiri before we reach the MacDonalds there is a road that on the right side which goes up from the main highway and you have a
break in the median to crossover to this road.
There is no need to cross MacDonalds and take a U turn and come back.

I thought that would be the road to Berikai as you mentioned. But I think most people will not be able to spot it. Hence I suggested the mac-donalds/CCD option.

The road I suggested goes through Shoolagiri town and then to Berikai.
As I have traveled a couple of times on this highway and was planning for this
route but never ventured due to time constraints and most of the time I cross
Banglore in the night.This trip I was travelling in the evening time so ventured
this road. You said correctly it is quite difficult to spot the road from the highway.
Crossing MacDonlds you have to travel about a kilometre to get a gap in the median to take the U turn.

During my last trip to Ghati Subramanya it was in good condition, but there are 2 routes to Devanahalli from Hoskote. One is the route which has been already discussed here, the other is there is a diversion on Old Madras Road to the left some 10km before Hoskote, it is an industrial area, this road used to be in very good condition. I used this route extensively when I was on my prior job to travel between Whitefield and Doddaballapur on my two wheeler. I will plan a travel on this stretch sometime this week and update.
If it is still good it can be another option.

The route mentioned by you is the same road that I had taken on my way back to Hyderabad.
This road is in good condition except for some big speed breakers in Budigere town.
The road signs are well marked towards Devanahalli airport.

As @Gajadonga said the main road from Hoskote to Devanahalli is the standard NH207. The other road which we are talking is the BIAL road.
This is a very good 2lane road which most cab guys take to reach the Airport from White field.

The turn to this road from OMR is about 2km from the point where the Varthur road (SH35) meets OMR.

The BIAL road via Mandur-Budigere-Devanahalli is in great condition but google maps still refers to this as unknown road and by default suggests NH207 via Hoskote for KR Puram to Devanahalli!
Traveled yesterday to the airport and enjoyed a relaxed, stress-free drive, glad I took this and avoided the ORR & Hebbal NH7 route.
Nearing Devanahalli, the airport boundary wall and runway are visible. We saw 2 planes descend across the road in front of us so stopped there to watch them land.
Distances from my home near C V Raman Nagar to BIAL on this route:
NH207 junction (turn left here) near Devanahalli - 37 Km
Devanahalli town (turn left here - on opp. side you can see the Police Station) - 41 Km
NH7 junction (turn left here) - 42 Km
Airport Toll Booth on left - 48 Km (toll collection has been stopped now)
Airport Parking lot - 55 Km

Going by the condition of the short stretch of NH207 that this road merges onto, I guess the Hoskote-Devanahalli section will be good too.

I think asdon is a regular on that route. Even I have taken that once or twice. Very good roads as you mentioned.
