You can reach Halageri taking left just after Harihar bypass and 500 meters before Chalageri toll. The road condition is good and it is about 14 KM. Advantage is you can save INR100 toll. But it is unavoidable if you are suppose to reach Ranebennur town.

Reached Kanyakumari at 4pm after leaving Bangalore at 6.15 am,the ride was excellent, weather super hot, traffic was mess till Salem, thereafter thinned out and the pace picked up,roads are excellent,but should always be on a look out for surprises on the road for our safety at least.

An average of 80+ kms is good (assuming a break of 1 hr combined). Typical of this highway. I had started at ~4am & reach Kanyakumari by 1+ pm. Expected weather at this juncture. How did the A/c perform? Too early to ask for mileage? Post Namakkal, didn't you encounter truck traffic at least till Karur? Hope you spent sometime nearby windfarms for photo sessions! Did you use Fastag, was it working all the while?

The following snaps are taken on the road from Bangalore to Kanyakumari,the weather was super hot but the AC worked very well,which made the journey a comfortable one, The breakfast we had was a new restaurant ,just after Bangalore,New Sarvana Bhavan which on the left side of the highway the service was quick,the snaps were taken by my wife on the go.
