I have to return to Bangalore from Mysore today. Any news of blockage at Mandya due to the sad demise of Ambrish?... planning to leave by 6 pm, any information is most welcome.

Even we have to return to Bangalore and have decided to take Malavalli, Kanakapura road to avoid any stoppages. In fact today morning also we came via the same route.

Thanks for the reply, will see some local channels and make a decision. Hopefully the road is clear as driving in dusk on Kanakapura Road is avoidable.

From the Mysore side, till you reach Halagur (if I remember right) or even further will have good road condition, getting closer to Kanakapura and till Bangalore will see road getting expanded and it's a single lane, will be actually a pain driving there at night. But don't want to take main road today due to the reason you stated.

Starting now to Bangalore on the usual road with an open option to return back to Mysore, I am still jet lagged and hence not risking the Kanakapura route.

How was the Mysore road. I have to leave by 9.30 so need to decide between Mysore road or Kanakapura road.

Catching up local news and looks like the mysore to bangalore Road has been blocked due to a political murder in Maddur. Anyone starting now towards Bangalore beware of delays.

Caught in a horrible traffic yesterday from Mysore to Bangalore. I know its not any new, but somehow yesterday it felt even more. While going to Nanjanagudu we took Kanakapura - Malavalli - Bannur - Mysore ring road route but while returning I took Mandya road since there is still construction under progress on Kanakapura road and didn't wanted to take that route in night.

Left Mysore at 6.35 PM and reached home near Kanakapura road after 10.30 PM, its straight 4 hrs. We were there at Mandya city traffic for about Half hour and Channapattana city traffic for at least one hour as there was some program/event going on .

Have decided to leave Mysore after 10 PM for all future travels.

Will be travelling Bangalore - Mysore on 2nd January. I'll probably hit Bangalore at 9 am and proceed to Mysore. Any suggestions on what the fastest route will be? Are there expected traffic snarls or blockades post new year?

Would help if you mention the starting point.

Most of the schools and offices in Bangalore are scheduled to open on 2nd January and hence 9am would be heavy traffic (irrespective of the point of entry into the city).

Apologies for not mentioning this.

Vellore - Krishnagiri - Hosur - Bangalore (Electronics city) - Dont take elevated road - Take left on to NICE road - Exit NICE road at Mysore road exit - Bidadi - Mandya - Mysore.

From entrance of NICE road you can budget around 3 hours for reaching Mysore.

There is a BP COCO near Channapattana incase you would require.

Do let know if you require additional route details.
