    Hi all

    Most of us will be travelling on a long weekends & festival holidays (Either to native or any vacation trip). normaly we all plan to start previous day evening or next day early morning. why dont we have a thread here so that we all plan to start together around the same time.

    if many join then it will be a Fiat convoy on highway:redcar:redcar:redcar


    for this pongal holidays:

    I am starting on 12.01.2013 early morning around 4.30 AM from chennai

    Route: Tambaram (Chennai) - Viluppuram-Ulunthurpet-Aattur- Salem-Komarapalayam

    Car: BNW Punto 1.3

    I am sure Karthik is also planning to start around 4.00 Am in this route in his silver Linea. so count is 2.

    if anyone planning to travel in the same time can see me enroute


    Mods: please delete/merge this threar if anything already available.

  2. Nice Idea dhans !!! My suggestion will be to have a dedicated thread for all the "Travel from chennai" instead of having it only for pongal. So whoever travels from chennai, mainly during the festival seasons can post it in that thread so anybody else who has plans to travel the same time can check this thread and plan accordingly. But aren't there any safety concerns to post Highway travel plans in a public forum ???

    dhans, please update with the road condition between Attur and Salem. Is it completely done or still underway? When I last drove, there was 2 major flyover construction underway. Is it done now? Also, is the new Salem bypass open?

  6. Only the bridge construction is going on between aathur and Salem, and Salem bypass has been opened for usage, and you need not enter ayodhyapattinam. Very few diversions are there in Salem bypass as on yesterday.
  7. BTW Dhans, when are you returning to chennai.?
