So the idea is:

- Hit Malleshwaram 17th Cross.
- Cross the railway over bridge.
- Drive to T junction on Rajkumar road and continue.

Thanks Guys.

Yes .A bangalore bound bus had a head on collision with a truck when the bus swerved to avoid crashing into a parked truck ,which had probably broken down !!! .Heard the bus driver lost his leg.

One good thing about the NH48 has been that we dont come across truckers stopping on the road due to breakdowns .Very rare is it that I have come across these .But now ,with 4 lanes and widening ...i did see a couple of truckers who had parked right in the fast lane!!!!

Like all other 4 lane highways,one needs to be careful of drivers coming the wrong side as well.

On the ghat ,it was nothing less than awesome !!!

We did Mangalore - Bangalore in about 6 hours in the lancer ( including the block near C patna )

This was discussed here. Peak or non peak hours, yeshwantpur stretch ( opposite new Rly terminal ) to nelamangala toll road is advised to be avoided. Metro work goes on 24 hours. Traffic to Peenya Indl area starts at 6am till the last outstation bus that leaves beyond midnight.

alternate : City Railway station - magadi road - Kamakshipalya - right turn to ORR - Rajkumar samadhi - left turn onto NH4 at goraguntepalya. Traffic 'flows' at all times.

another option : Hebbal - Bel circle - NH4 ( 2 rly level crossings and truck traffic )

1. How do I access Tumkur road, when coming via Sankey tank?

4. Last time I was told to hit 8th main from Sankey and arrive at the Yashwantpur circle.
Assuming you are coming from Bellary road side, try this out which AFAIK is a far better option. Search in GoogleMaps with the following options:-
A: Sankey Road, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560003 (Cauvery Theatre)
B: Sankey Tank, Bengaluru, Karnataka
C: Kodandarampura, Bangalore, Karnataka (Sadashiv Nagar Police Station)
D: Tata Institute Bus Stop/Towards Yeshwanthpur & Mathikere, CV Raman Rd, Malleshwaram, Bengaluru, Karnataka
E: Yeshwanthpur

We take this quite often to goto Yeshwantpur Rly Stn and found it extremely convenient and straight-forward than going inside Malleswaram or Rajajinagar. Basically, the regular route from Cauvery theater will have a signal just before Sankey Tank. Then, you have Sankey Tank on your right. Instead, this alternative route will have Sankey Tank on your left. Once the tank periphery is over, you will touch the road from Mekhri circle to Yeswantpur in a few meters. Take left and you get the traffic signal next to Sadashivanagar Police Station. Go straight and join back the old route in front of the IISc main gate.

The road stretch on the Shiradi ghat is very bad, better to avoid this route, you can travel via Madikere or Travel via Hassan, Belur, Belthangady route, you can bypass and reach Udupi.

There are a veg restaurants in Mangalore Taj Mahal is ( Hampkatte circle ), Woodlands is another good hotel near Jyothi circle. One more Taj Mahal hotel is Opp Ram Bhavan complex, Ayodhya is located near PVS building, There is a new hotel in higher category OCEAN next to Taj Mahal, Rambhavan complex. In case of Non Veg there is one hotel in Mannagudde circle.

It is better to fuel up in Mangalore if you want premium or power petrol. In Udupi you have Kediyoor hotel and Paradise near Diana hotel is very good for non veg.

Thanks for the response folks. So where exactly the elevated toll road starts?
What is the distance from Yashwantpur fly-over to the start of elevated toll road?
So the troubled stretch should be that part of the route.

The elevated road starts exactly 100 mtr after the ring road junction(Junction where u make a left from Tumkur road to go towards Mysore Road Side on the ORR).

Distance on the elevated road till nelamangala is about 17km. You should be able to do this stretch in about 15 - 18 mins and the toll is 15 rupees.

I hear people get stuck because of river overflowing over a bridge on the way to Subramanya. Is it a bad idea to go to Subramanya between Jun 15 & 30? How/where does one check if one wants to go there?

It is difficult to time this. Normally this happens 2 or 3 days during monsoon, but more towards mid July I suppose. But western ghats would be so beautiful during monsoon.

Heard that cars can do the Sullia-Madikeri route now .Even though its not officially opened for public,I heard that one can pay an unofficial toll of 100rs without receipt and drive on this stretch . Does anybody have any updates?


Has anyone of us driven through Charmadi in the last 1-2 months ?
