Default Team-BHP Chennai ECR drive - To Pondicherry on 21st April, 2018

We are meeting this Saturday 21 April at 12 noon for lunch at Maison Perumal Pondicherry - https://www.tripadvisor.in/Restauran...ndicherry.html

An early start of around 7 AM at Uthandi Toll is planned, so that we have a few hours of sightseeing around the old part of Pondicherry before we grab lunch and then return to Chennai (or Bangalore if any Bangalore BHPians want to join us).

The agenda will include further planning of the Valparai trip (Team-BHP drive to Dindigul & Deep South! 11-13 May, 2018) including stopovers and collection of trip money for those that wish to hand it over in person.

See you this Saturday in Pondy, whether or not you are coming to Valparai!

The two toll booths on the ECR enroute to Pondicherry, one at Uthandi and the other one just short of Pondicherry are not ETC enabled. The ECR does not come under the NHAI, it is TNRDC. So having or not having a Fastag will make no difference.
At the Uthandi toll booth tell them that you are going to Pondicherry. There is a rate to Mahabalipuram and back, which is Rs 56/ and another rate to Pondicherry, which I do not recall.

Ah OK, thanks! It has been about four or five years since I've been on that route, or anywhere near Pondy.

This is starting to look like a washout. No confirmations at all?

Ok I will leave with my family and be at Uthandi toll till around 7.10, let’s see who turns up. Else I have a weekend trip with my family, fine.
