    It was decent when I did this stretch in September last. But, the major pain in this section is the traffic (truck).

    My relative also travelled this route a week back and he also mentioned the same.

    Let us know the road conditions once you pass this section and reach your destination. Slim chances that I may use this section in the near future. Drive safe!

    Friends...I travelled from Chennai to Thrissur yesterday. I strongly request you all to avoid Coimbatore-Palakkad-Thrissur route. There was huge traffic block in Valayar. We had to re route through a different route. And Palakkad-Thrissur stretch is under 4 lane construction. It was a pain driving through that stretch.

    I travelled from Thrissur to Chennai yesterday. I took Thrissur-Wadakkancherry-Kollengode-Pollachi-Palladam-Avinashi route. The drive through this route was a breeze (except for a 30 KM stretch from Thrissur to Wadakkancherry) compared to Palakkad-Coimbatore route.

    I have always suggested to avoid this route and instead go through Pollachi-Kollengode. I know the kind of pain you have gone through.

    I suggested Thrissur-Palakkad route only because couple of months back when I travelled through this route, the roads were good. Anyways until the 4 lane construction is over, its better to take the route you mentioned.

    ^^ I doubt if they will complete the construction anytime soon. :D
    It is being done for years now.

    But things are going fast I guess. When I travelled through Palakkad-Thrissur route on Feb, it was 2 lane only. But now they have managed to finish 10-15% into 4lane. Its not opened yet.

    sreejith ... travel with 100% confidence I have done this route last week till Aluva as per the advice from Ramjn.. roads are in very good condition ... noting to worry about any thing and the route is very beautiful as well... only problem which I faced is could not find any good restaurants .. Ramesh give me some options I have missed those.. so end up eating lunch in Trissur at 4 ..PM... route will almost look like below pic especially the roads
