Came to Vellore yesterday via kurnool nandyal cuddapa rayachoti chittoor. Extensive road widening work going on in between rayachoti and chittoor. Long stretches of single lane gravel track and terribly dusty if you get stuck behind a truck, which any way you will, because you can not overtake it on the single lane stretches. Felt pity for my tyres. Will try a different route while going back.

Thinking of Vellore - Gudiyattam - palamner - kadiri - jamalmadugu - nandyal route with a stop over at gandikota. Any one has got any feedback on this planned route?

How much time did you take?

For me,
Hyderabad-Kurnool-Anantpur-Devanahalli-Whitefield-Sarjapur-Hosur-Krishnagiri-VIT
and
Hyderabad-Anantpur-Devanahalli-Hoskote-Chittoor-VIT
take same as
Hyderabad-Kurnool-Nandyal-Kadapa-Rayachoti-Chittoor-VIT
which is 10.5 hours.

Thanks for confirming that the roads are still not good.

During my earlier visits I used to take a total of 12-13 hours from VIT to Hyderabad, with a number of smoke breaks and lunch break. I am a very very sedate driver (look at my id ).
Checked from my gmaps timeline, earlier I used to take around 3 hours after crossing the small ghat section before Rayachoti to VIT, but this time it has taken 4 hours.

Hi folks, was looking for route options to Tirupati, seems like the direct option through Kurnool - Nandyal - Kadapa - Chittoor works well.
Any particular concerns with truck traffic on this?

I am starting from Tirupathi on 21st October at around 2pm and will be visiting Mantralayam. Plan is to make an overnight stay at Nandyal and next morning reach Mantralaya. Could somebody help with the road condition? I will be traveling with 5 adults and 2 kids in ertiga.
As per some older postings the road from Tirupathi to Nandyal appears ok but any idea about road between Nandyal to Veldurthi which is on NH7.
Since I have never taken any of these roads before want to make sure to reach early if possible in some daylight. Certainly not post 9pm

Are there any updates on the Kurnool bypass road that goes to Nandyal? I will be travelling to Mantralayam from Nandyal on 22nd October. Google maps is showing this route which was not ready a few days back. Could somebody please confirm the completion status for the same?
The only choice otherwise I have is to check the status at Nannur toll plaza and then make a decision on the way to Mantralayam.
