Bangalore to Chennai: Which Route?

Discussion in 'Travelogues & Experiences' started by daretodream, Jun 28, 2012.

  1. I followed the same route as in post #18. The roads from Walajah to Mulabagilu ranged from good to average and traffic was also stiff. But I enjoyed my drive as I always prefer 2laned roads than the 4-lanes. A big relief was the absence of tolls.

    On the return journey, I tried Chittor-Katpadi-Vellore and I felt that this was better than Chittor-Ranipet-Walajah.

    I did Bangalore to Chennai via Kolar/Chittoor non-stop in 5 hours 10 minutes last night. The details are here. Road surface has become rough, uneven, wavy with mounds of asphalt on the tarmac in many stretches between Sunguvarchatram and Poonamallee, especially in front of Hyundai plant making driving a nightmare.:(

    Write complaint to NHAI. After paying toll why we should rely on luck with pot holes? If in US we can go to court against the authority collecting toll.

    Complaint to NHAI? We are in a lawless state, Sun.

    I stopped paying toll at the Sriperumbudhur toll plaza and also at the Chengalput toll plaza. No one has dared to stop me so far.

    How come they allow you without paying toll?
    On NH4 hubli-Banglore strech there were 2-3 toll plazas which were not functioning.

    I am not paying at these tolls for the last one year. I just keep moving and no one even tried to stop me or asked me to pay the toll :D.
