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.

Visited to Mantralaya via Tirupati but since that route covers ~70% of Hyderabad Tirupati route, thought of sharing my experience here.

Bangalore-Tirupati-Tirumala: (~300KM)

Started at 7.30AM on Friday on the usual Bangalore-Chittoor-Tirupati-Tirumala road, excellent till Karnataka border but becomes two lanes in Andhra. Not bad but will make you frustrated if you get stuck behind a truck and heavy traffic from other side.
Reached Tirumala at around 1PM with one break for quick breakfast.

Tirumala-Mantralaya: (~470KM)

Tirupati-Kadapa: Started at 2.30PM with excellent 2 lane road with pretty wide lanes, very low traffic until few kilometers before Kadapa. You can easily cruise at 100KMPL but be careful about sudden pot holes, speed breakers without sign boards or local transport vehicles making sudden stop in front of you. Be extra watchful on the Kadapa bypass since it is bit tricky to identify that against the normal road entering Kadapa in dark.

Kadapa-Nandyal: Excellent 4 lane road (NH40, tolled but very nominal yet, since the road is not fully completed) reminding NH-7 at its best until you hit outskirts on Nandyal where it becomes bad, worse and then worst. Google maps goofed up since the road shown was blocked due to a railway over bridge construction so have to turn back to reach the lodge with additional few kilometers. Reached at around 9PM and made a stay at Dwaraka lodge with most horrible experience. Extremely bad rest rooms, dust and spider webs and what not, but being a stay for few hours somehow managed that.

Nandyal-Mantralaya: Good news!! Kurnool bypass is complete and took that road but had to negotiate the worst areas in Nandyal before reaching the 4 lane road again (NH40). Started at 9AM. The toll gate at Nannur is not operational yet and immediately after that the Kurnool bypass with start on left. Reached the NH-7 (44) and took the Kodumur road just before Kurnool by exiting NH-7. Then at Kodumur took the usual Yemmiganur-Mantralayam road. Reached at 12PM.

Mantralaya-Bangalore: (~425KM)
Usual Mantralaya-Veldurthi-Bangalore road (NH-7), with excellent condition. Started at 11.30AM and reached Bangalore by 8.00PM.

Overall Hyderabad Tirupthi can be covered in less that 8 hours if all the roads get completed (specifically blockers at Nandyal and bypass at Kadapa)

Default Re: Hyderabad to Tirupati : Route Info

Guys
I need to travel to Proddatur this weekend from Hyderabad. Google maps suggests I take the Bandalore highway till Kurnool, then NH40 towards Cuddapah, after bypassing Kurnool. Somewhere at Duvvuru (before Mydukuru and Cuddapah) I need to take a right turn towards Proddatur.

My question is whether the highway from Kurnool to Cuddapah is 4-laned now, or do some pain points still exist near Nandyal bypasss? Also, apart from Haritha at Orvakkal, is there any decent restaurant on the Kurnool to Cuddapah highway for lunch?

Kurnool - Kadapa is 4 laned except 2/3 km inside Nandyal where the flyover is not complete.

Many thanks. Any pointers towards food joints between Kurnool and Cuddapah? Doesn't the highway near Nandyal have any options?

I guess there are only two tolls till Duvvuru. I read somewhere that they accept Fastag, but it would help if someone confirms.
