Drive was excellent, the road is not that good from Kanchipuram to SriPerumbudur. Obviously you have to pay tolls at many places and I felt it was very high at some places as the road was not good according to what you pay. On the way you can visit Kanchipuram, Vellore if time permits. Both the places are significant for temples.

The road from Bangalore to Chennai is super smooth. You can't resist to drive in 100-120 speed. It is totally toll road, we have to pay little bit but very much comfortable. Approximate cost for toll will be - 35+75+75+50+50. As this is toll road, you may not get road side food always. Lots of petrol pump is there in this journey. But I feel to make full tank before journey. Approximately it will take 6 hrs to complete the journey. In certain stretch before entering Vellore, you will find railway route at your side. The direction of the road is well-marked, so no need to have constant look into the gprs in your mobile.

Happy and safe journey.

On an impulse we decided to drive from Bangalore to Chennai.

There are two options : one via Hoskote and Kolar, and the other via Hosur, Krishnagiri, Ambur and Vellore, and both these routes merge at Ranipet, after which you cross Kanchipuram and Sriperumbudur before reaching Chennai. After asking many travellers, we chose Hosur, and man, are we are grateful to those who suggested this. The highway is awesome, at least upto Ranipet, and even my tired, old WagonR was clocking 130+ speeds without a murmur. We took around 7 hours to reach Chennai.

One more tip, please leave as early as possible to beat both the rush of cars / trucks / buses, and also to minimize the travel time in hot conditions. We left Bangalore at 4.30 AM, and reached our hotel at Chennai by 11.30 AM. Breakfast suggestions : Any of A2B, Krishna Sagar, Dhaba Express, or even McDonald's near Krishnagiri. If you leave early enough, then you can have lunch at Chennai, but if you are not an early riser, then lunch options are Star Briyani at Ambur, and Saravana Bhavan (veg) or The Vellore Kitchen at Vellore.

One word of caution for the Hosur route : there are as many as 7 toll booths in this 350 odd km stretch, and the total amount (one way) comes to around Rs. 400, but when you drive on the road, you will feel that every rupee you have paid is worth it.

Except for drive through Bangalore to the highway and the entry to Chennai, the drive was pleasant. Both Bangalore and Chennai are cosmopolitan cities you will encounter heavy density of traffic and it will take some time to reach your destination. As a frequent traveler to Chennai, I have tried both the routes, via Chittoor and via Krishnagiri, and I found there is no difference. At least, via Chittoor, the lorry traffic is considerably less.

I travelled with my family to Chennai for the Christmas holidays. The drive was very good and you can maintain an average of 100 KM/H. however there are some precautions one should take to make the journey better :

1. The toll gate near hosur and krishnagiri was very crowded when we reached there at 7AM. probably need to be more early. we lost about 1 hour in these toll gates.
2. Adyar anandha bhavan seems to be the place where the entire crowd seems to be having breakfast!!! best to avoid this if you need to save time. service is also very poor. in the heavy crowd people start fighting in the queue. this will dampen the holiday spirits.
3. There are a lot of restaurants after vellore however its on the wrong side if you are driving from bangalore. so keep watching on the other side.
