DC shuts down Charmadi ghat for all vehicles till Aug 8-1

Mangaluru: Landslides and uprooting of trees at several spots along the Charmadi ghats has led Dakshina Kannada district Deputy Commissioner S Sasikanth Senthil to ban vehicular movement here for the next two days.

The decision was taken by the DC following a request letter from the executive engineer of National Highway, who urged the DC to shut the road for vehicular movement for at least two days. The letter written by the executive engineer also informed that it would be very difficult to clear the debris/ loose mud from the landslide spots if the vehicles continue to move on this stretch.

The two days ban of vehicular movement commenced from August 7, 6 am to August 8,  midnight 12 am. During the ban period, the vehicles can opt an alternative route of Ujire - Dharmastala - Kokkada - Gundya - Shiradi and another route of Mudigere - Jannapur - Anemahal - Shiradi and Gundya on National Highway-75.
