    I might be driving to Chennai (Not finalized yet) on 19th Aug.
    I have to attend one friend's marriage. Since its on weekdays so plan not yet confirmed.

    Now I have to go to "San Thome Church" in Mylapore area.
    So now, chennai guys, give me some idea about routes once i reach Chennai, from Bangalore.

    Hi Ravi,

    I didn't get you? What do u mean by routes? You mean Chennai local routes or reaching "San Thome Church" from Bagalore?

    There are 'n' nr. of routes you can opt for. I suggest you the following route, simple and hassle free.

    Continue on NH4 after crossing Koyambedu. You will be driving in P.H. road which will eventually lead you to central railway station. The traffic signal just adjacent to central station is your first landmark.You don't have to take right. Just cross this signal. You will come across 2 more signals with about 100m dividing each. Cross the first signal. The second signal is a dead end. Take the right. You will get onto a bridge. At the end of the bridge. You'll have a signal. Don't take right. Just cross the signal. You will reach a dead end again. Take a right turn. This is the Marina beach road. No more left turns or right turns. Once you cross the Marina, your destination is just 100m away.

    Hope I've not confused you.

    For reference, you can take a printout of what I've written.

    One you reach Chennai and if you have doubts, call me on my mob.

    Trip is completed without any issue.
    Thanks Clevermax for your directions, reached and returned back from Chennai with any confusion.

    I just love my Punto, its performance is so mature on highways on high speed.
    One of my friend also drove it for few hundred KM on highway and chennai city, and he was amazed. He says Punto has rocket turbo. He is a very good driver and understood the quality of Punto.

    Wil post some pictures tomorrow.

    Good Ravi.

    You are right punto gives excellent performance in highways especially Bangalore-Chennai road is amazing. I took my punto from Hosur to Chennai twice, though I am a novice driver I was enjoying my :steering ride with my punto. :clap :car
