From Adivaram, till Muthanga, the roads are really horrible. In fact, there is hardly even a km with out potholes. I do visit Sulthan Bathery regularly from Calicut, and these days, drive via nilambur, nadukani, Cherambady, erumad, Bathery. Extra 20 kms, still worth it.

Churam = Horrible.
Lakkidi to Vythiri = Very Good.
Vythiri to Chundel = Good
Chindel to Kalpetta = Was bad, patched up to OK.
Kapetta to Meenenagadi = Was very bad, now patched up to OK (Till Milma meenangaadi)
Meenangaadi to 54 = OK (but can be categorized as bad)
54 to Kolagapara Kavala = Good.
Kolagapara to Beenachi = Not good, with big potholes unexpected.
Beenachi to Bathery = OK. (Take caution for bikers avoiding small potholes)
Bathery to Kallur = OK, Again, (Take caution for bikers avoiding small potholes)
Kallur to Muthanga = OK(Bad around the check post area).

This is pretty much Wayanad NH 212 condition right now.

You are right. Earlier, NH17 used to go via Kunnamkulam to Ponnani, but now they have rerouted it directly from Chavakkad to Ponnani.
