[Resolved]  NH66 condition terrible — NH66 KrishnaGiri to Tiruvannamalai

NH66 from Krishnagiri to Tiruvannamalai is extremely bad. Loads of people tarvel to Arunachalam on every poornima to make Girivallam. A night drive in this road is very very dangerous. Deep potholes can strand a Suv to a small car. If you travel in the night on a rainy day, every kilometer in the road has a death trap. Because water is filled in the potholes, you would not know how deep the pothole and your car will land up in the ditch and you need to sleep there. The trucks and buses with huge headlamps will make you to literally make a stop and proceed. They never used dimmer and you can imagine..

If the authorities feel at least the moral responsibility, they should immediately take action to lay good roads.. Otherwise, one day, their children will face the music..

I complained to MODI JI about this road. I got response only. But road looks to be in same condition.

Can anybody tell me on how is road condition at present ? I am planning to travel next week.

The roads were motorable until I think 5 yrs back - the entire 100+ KM's stretch from Krishnagiri to TVM had fully grown huge trees that used to make it an awesome road to use - but, i am not sure whose idea was it to cut down all of those and relay the roads - you start some thing if you are capable to complete it! pathetic governance, whoever is involved in the decision making -
More than the roads, I feel bad for those really huge trees that were razed off...
@Balu Natarajan - That was a good initiative from your side. Can you please follow up reg the same? I think there is an option to send a reminder.


Many thanks once again.
I recently took this route (from Krishnagiri to Thiruvannamalai) by bike. (Dated: May 2016.) As I was travelling less than 80 kmph, so breaking was easy at places where the road was broken. In fact at some places the left side of the road was non-existent, in its place there was a 6 feet deep ditch stretching a 100 meters or so. There was also no warning for the ditch. Because I am a very careful rider so I was able to avoid this ditch, but I can only imagine how a car can avoid this ditch travelling at 100 kpmg in night!! Impossible! Other than this there were several places with patches of broken road & I had to slow down the bike a lot. You can make a bike to zig-zag in between, but it is very difficult for SUV cars to do that. I will still say that this road is manageable if you travel at maximum 80 kmph very very carefully. Because the road is mostly fine except for those patches here & there. But don't even think about travelling in dark!
Government team, please take some action ... this is extremely dangerous. Last week (30th Night) I saw one lorry toppled completely, because he didn't know which is the actual road.
