Despite driving a SUV, the drive is nerve wrecking because of the even distribution of potholes. While doing good speed, one suddenly encounters potholes and end up driving on it faster than intended. After 20-30 such occurrences, it can become very frustrating.

Has the Shiradi Ghat road degradation (this years damage !) happened due to overloaded ore laden trucks, or was it due to the shoddy jobs by the road laying contractors, I wonder ?

mooza, shoddy work has become a trend and i guess every year it happens only that since the ore trucks are gone the roads have survived little longer and it is not that horrific yet.

Can anyone suggest conditions of the alternate routes to Hassan from Bangalore?

If i take this route via Tumkur-Tiptur-Arsikere-Hassan, then there is the question mark on the condition of road from Arsikere to Hassan. Anybody who has driven on this stretch very recently ??

Can we take this route :

BLR-Magadi-Nagamangala-Bellur cross-Hassan.

Can anyone throw some light on the condition of the road between Magadi-Nagamangala-Bellur cross sections ?

Info on any other routes also would be gratefully accepted. The main intention is to avoid the pathetic stretch of road between Kunigal and Bellur cross.

Awaiting the valuable inputs of regulars who are driving in this sector.

Don't ever try the Arsikere-Hassan stretch. The road is in OK condition for the first 25 kms and the last 15 kms stretch is horrible.

I haven't been on the Nagamangala route, but have been thinking of trying that route for the past 2 years and still have not tried it

2 weeks back I travelled Bangalore-Hassan-Sakaleshpur- Swastha home stay - Bisle ghat - Kukke Subramanya-Shiradi ghat- back to home stay-Shettihalli sub merged church-hassan-bangalore. Total 630km wonderful trip. Although Safari swollen all potholes gave us 5star comfort but I am disappointed about road condition almost everywhere. Half of our journey had bad or rough roads. Still managed to get 9kmpl!! Credit goes to my driver utilizing this beautiful machine. We used heater/ac in many places. Around Sakaleshpur-Kukke Subramanya it rained pleasantly.

There is bad stretch for every 5 km.

Actually they should repair entire nh48 very soon else public should eliminate them from their chair. 4 lane work is worst one I cant see any progress!! Shame on concerned authorities.

Regards,

Ravi.

So, you finally did it. What route did you take to the Shettihalli Church?

Thanks for the update Addy. I may have no choice but to drive on the same back-breaking NH 48

Rajesh, i believe the road which connects from Srirangapatana to Hassana is supposed to be in a good shape.about a month back my brother had taken this route and was happy with the condition. though you might want to check on it.

Bangalore-Srirangapatna-Hassan could be an alternate road. This goes via Pandavapura-K R Pet and joins NH48 at Channarayapatna. But, distancewise, it will be around 50 kms more.

Yes lohith, i have this route in my radar, but this will mean an additional distance & time. Need to check what will be the distance between BLR-HSN thro' the above route.

I did BLR-NICE-MAgadi-Kunigal-Hassan (The regular route) over last weekend and it was decent overall. Rough patches around Magadi and some potholes around Kunigal.
