    If you are looking for Chennai-Thrissur, you shouldn't go to Coimbatore at all if you want to avoid the under construction stretches.

    The stretch is pretty much completed from Chengapalli till Neelambur except for very minor deviations which doesn;t exceed a km. The only problem is there are many speed breakers.

    But for Trichur, the route provided by you is still the best.

    I don't understand why this section from Avinashi to Coimbatore which is within Tamil Nadu limits took so long and is still not fully completed. And why Coimbatore to Thrissur section is taking such a long time to develop. This section is a always a sore point for any body wanting to travel to Central Kerala from Madras. It is smooth sailing upto Avinashi and then from Thrissur it is again four laned. If they don't want to develop the road between Coimbatore and Palakkad, they should atleast maintain the two laned road and keep it free from potholes. I wonder what they present condition is, bad or pathetic?

    It is useless eventhough it is four laned from Thrissur to Kochi. Hell of traffic with so many signals too. They shouldn't be collecting toll for this road.

    How about taking Avinashi - Palakkad - Shornur - Thrissur ? One of my colleagues mentioned about this route ?

    Again, you have to undergo the under construction stretch between Avanashi and Coimbatore. And the most painful stretch from Coimbatore to Palghat.

    Alternate route would be, Avanashi-Palladam-Pollachi-Palghat. It is farther by 30 kms. but less painful and good for your car. From Palghat, you can make Palghat-Ottapalam-Shoranur-Thrissur.

    But, I strongly recommend, Perundurai-Kangayam-Palladam-Pollachi-Kollengode-Alathur-Chelakkara-Thrissur.

    Ramesh,

    What about the stretch between Alathur-Kuthiran-Mannuthy ? Is it in good shape ? Last time, I faced the biggest pot holes in my life in that stretch :eek:

    They have tarred the road from Palakkad to Thrissur (Kuthiran-Mannuthy) route. Last time when I travelled, it was good in shape
