Charmadi Ghat

As per the order, passage has been provided to 6 wheeler lorries’ with 2 axels and goods vehicle with a maximum length of 20 feet and weighing less than 16 tons. In order to prevent the entry of heavy vehicles into the Ghat road, the police had stopped all lorries at Guruvayanakere which consequently led to a complete traffic jam....

Belthangady Tahsildar Madan Mohan arrived to the location and gave the direction for the lorries to pass through the Ghat road. Later, he requested the DC to provide permission for the passage of 6 wheeler goods vehicles via the Ghat road and therefore the DC passed the new order.

With access given to the lorries, the vehicle density increased on Charmadi Ghat road which led to  problems with the vehicular movement. The slow pace by which the vehicles were moving also did create a bit of a traffic problem.
