Take the old madras road(NH4). Travel only during daytime. Nights are a total no-no. 4 hrs from Bangalore outskirts to chennai outskirts. Leaving and entering the respective cities are the pain.Have a wonderful journey and call me when u're in chennai.

I guess the new road .. ie Blr - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Vellore road is also gud.

Expect for some really bad patches near Vellore / Ambur.

Have fun ... I dont mind coming to Blr and then guiding you the route
