Bengaluru: The State Government is presently working on an alternative one-way route for vehicles coming towards Bengaluru from Shiradi, said PWD Minister C. C. Patil here on Tuesday July 19. This will help ease the burden on the current Shiradi Ghat stretch on the Bengaluru-Mangaluru route, which is experiencing frequent landslides due to heavy rain, he added. 

He said the road is expected to be completed in a week and the government will then lift the restrictions placed on the movement of heavy vehicles on the stretch of road. Vehicles travelling from Bengaluru to Mangaluru will use the existing Shiradi Ghat stretch, while those travelling in the opposite direction will go through the villages of Kappalli and Kesaganahalli at Donigal, which is close to Sakleshpura in Hassan, said Patil.

The Minister further said that orders for one-way traffic on these stretches have been given to the Hassan Deputy Commissioner. “Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has ordered that the funds be released immediately and it will just be a temporary measure. only light motor vehicles are now permitted owing to frequent landslide,” he asserted.

He said that the government is committed to meeting the deadline of March-end next year, for completing the 35 km-long Shiradi Ghat road. “There should not be any such issues by next monsoon. 20 km of the 39 km stretch are under the National Highway and are in good condition. The remaining 19 km of the stretch are under construction. The works were delayed because of the monsoon. To expedite the construction, the Chief Minister said he will discuss it with the Union Minister for Roads and Highways if necessary. But it is not needed at present,” he added.
