Mangaluru July 24, 2015:  Talking to the media July 23,  DK DC Adoor.B. Ibrahim said the Public Works Department’s National Highway Division had nearly completed the work of concreting the 13-km stretch between Maranahalli and Kempu Hole (central part of the Ghat section).  Shiradi Ghat would  be opened for light motor vehicles from August 1. The  Ghat had been closed for traffic since this January 2015.

The PWD was now strengthening the shoulders along the 13-km stretch.  DK DC Ibrahim said for the first few days only light motor vehicles will be allowed on the Shiradi Ghat. Heavy vehicles will be allowed later after checks. PWD Minister H.C. Mahadevappa would be inspecting the work along with Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports K. Abhayachandra Jain on July 25.

Traffic was diverted to Bengaluru and Hassan via Charmadi Ghat and Sampaje Ghat. Narrow road stretches in the Charmadi Ghat and land slips during the monsoon had affected smooth movement of vehicles.
