Hi, I'm planning to drive from Goa to Kannur. It's a long drive of about 10hrs. Wanted to understand how are the road conditions. Any suggestions/ advice are welcome.
I am not sure about the road conditions in Northern Karnataka. Last time I traveled through the route was in an overnight bus a few months back and I remember the roads weren't that good. Widening work was going on at most places. However the stretch from a little north of Uduppi to Mangalore was great. Tolled 4 lane highway. From Mangalore to Kannur, around 150 kms typical Kerala highways - smooth roads but not wide enough and too much vehicles and towns every 5-10 kms.
I have traveled from Murudeshwar to Kannur, it was not a pleasant experience. Road construction is going on up to Kerala boarder and lot of truck traffic. Otherwise, it should be ok as long as you are a patient driver. If there is an option, better alternative will be train.
Is there an update on this? Planning to drive from Mangalore to Kannur next week.
Looking at doing this drive in January. How is it now?
