Is Taking NH44 towards Hosur is the best option or is there any way I can skip banglore and reach hosur?

As I'm traveling for the first time via this route 8m not well aware of the road and want to avoid narrow unmarked roads.
I havent been regular on TBHP off-late so missed this thread.Not sure if you have completed your journey,if not,then this is the way to bypass Bangalore City and connect straight to the highway at Hosur.

Devanahalli-Hoskote-Malur-Bagalur-Hosur (save on a bit of tolls as well)

The best way to drive to Kerala from Hyderabad when not on a non-stop drive is to break day 1 at Salem onwards,with a 5am departure from Shamshabad,you should ideally be at Salem by 5pm.If your end destination is towards the south of Kerala then you might be tempted to stretch it to Dindigul which has a few good hotels.

If the destination is towards Thrissur ,Kochi etc,then Salem is ideal.With an early breakfast,you could be home for a late lunch

I have been trying to keep this link updated with all the eateries,like i said have been a little irregular off-late.

Yes. The flyover is completed. It's mostly uninterrupted now except for a signal after/near to DMart (i think!). Apart from this, there were a couple of diversions near gooty and dhone that are also completed now.

There were a couple of diversions yesterday. One was on the tungabhadra river bridge where the left side of the bridge was closed (traveling from BLR) and both sides used the right bridge. And one more near Boothpur before jadcherla (this has been going on for more than 6 months)

I just did a round trip to Banjara Hills, Hyderabad from Bangalore, on the past long weekend.

While going there, there was some traffic but not too bad, and it took me about 7 hours from South Bangalore to Banjara Hills, after an early morning start at 5:15am. While returning, the traffic was very heavy and I got stuck at a few jams, and took a lot more time. So it all depends on the traffic.

For arriving there at 9am, I think you would have to start from Bangalore at about 2am. But again, it will depend on your driving style, number of stops on the way, and the traffic of course.

Thank you. So 11pm seems realistic, keeping couple of hours extra for any contingencies or any powernaps if needed.

With a 3:00 am start from Bangalore Airport toll underneath the trumpet interchange, we entered Hyderabad ring road at 9:20am a week before. This was with a break time of around 50 minutes.

Our cruising speeds were mostly between 110-120 all the times while we may have been even more slower till Kurnool due to badly marked or unmarked speedbreakers.

I totally agree! Unlike driving to Kochi, this drive was boring and irritating. Only place to make up time was after Anantpur. Got a ticket courtesy of Kodandapurs finest. Note that at Raikal, the police stop and check for pending violations

Stopped at Blue Moon and then somewhere else after Pyramid which looked pretty run down

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

Question on the route to Sarjapur Social from Hebbal. We need to drive to our daughter's place from Hyderabad. Wanted to check from BLR folks here on what route should I take from Hebbal---should I take the ring road via Manyata Tech Park, Tin Factory and Marathahalli, or should i take the old route via Raj Bhavan, Brigade Road and Silk Board?

I am not aware of the latest road conditions, hence any inputs will be very helpful. We plan to start at 5 AM from Necklace Road area in Hyderabad.

You would be entering Bangalore city in the afternoon (post 1pm) probably. You can take the ring road as the traffic would be less until 4PM. Roads are good along this stretch although the ongoing metro work does create bottle necks in a few spots.

Thank you, followed your advice and reached my daughter's flat near Carmelaram station at 1 pm, having left Hyderabad at 4:20 AM. Though I did not cross 100 till dawn, I checked and found no speeding tickets.

I agree that the drive has become longer in duration and has lost the excitement it once had, mainly due to the below reasons:-

--Speed guns on the way---luckily I escaped those. Cover of darkness might have helped.

--Too many speedbreakers between Kurnool and Penukonda. These spring up at almost every major town's bypass. Earlier we saw these only near Dhone, Anantapur and Gutturu, apart from the ones at Chikbellapur and Devanahalli. Now they have doubled or nearly trebled.

--Phenomenol increase in two-wheeler traffic near Anantapur---30 kms before to 30 kms after that town. This makes it difficult to overtake a slow-moving truck that is hogging the right lane.

--Road surface at a few places between Dhone and Anantapur has deteriorated.

--At nearly 3 or 4 places between Jadcherla and Peunkonda, the opposite road was closed,and cones were placed in the middle of our side to accommodate opposite direction traffic. These stretches were for 2 kms each. A slow-moving truck in front of you will slow you down for the entire stretch.

--Hebbal to Belandur ring road has become a lot narrower due to the metro construction. Tin factory coninutes to be a headache, where the 1 km distance takes nearly 15 minutes.

What has improved however is that i could spot several mobile vans offering hot idly-wada-dosa for breakfast. I found nearly a dozen of these between Kurnool and Anantapur. Also found some good breakfast joints just after crossing Anantapur.

Long back, we could cover Hyd airport to Blr airport in 5 to 5.5 hours. Now it took me 6.5 hours for that.

Another setback I found was the hotel Blue Moon at Kasepalli was closed. Not sure why.

Hope this helps those who are looking for recent updates.

Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

How do you all spot the speed guns ? Are they stationary and mounted on a pole like seen In Middle East ? Or they are set up in a Sumo or Innova with rear doors open ?
Any leverage /grace above the speed of 80kmkh is permitted?
