National Highway 234 (NH 234), is a National Highway in India that originates in Mangalore, Karnataka, travels through Venkatagirikota, Andhra Pradesh and Vellore, Thiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, terminating at Villupuram, Tamil Nadu.

Under the new highway numbering system, Mangalore to Banavara part of this highway has been renumbered as National Highway 73.[1]


NH 234, part of which has been renumbered as NH 73 in Karnataka.[1]

Mangalore - Bantwal - Belthangady - Ujire - Charmadi - Mudigere - Belur - javagal - Huliyar - Sira - Madhugiri-Byranahalli -Kotaladinne- Gauribidanur- Manchenahlli - Chikkaballapur - Chintamani - Venkatagirikota - Pernampattu - Gudiyatham - Vellore City - Kannamangalam - Polur - Thiruvannaamalai - Villupuram

As the forest department does not allow the widening of the roads going through the western ghats, it is expected that a tunnel will be built, same like as proposed by Japanese consultants to the shiradi ghat of NH-48. A tunnel will help in reducing the travel time by 3 hours, reduce the fuel usage and increase the productivity of the industries around. It will also provide an alternative route to the large sized trucks transporting materials to the seaport and air-cargo facility at Mangalore.
