Mangaluru: Landslide at Marnalli on Shiradi Ghat, traffic diverted


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Jul 22: Traffic is completely blocked on Shiradi Ghat after a hill collapsed at Marnalli on Shiradi Ghat in Sakleshpur tauk, on Thursday July 22.

Commuters travelling to Bengaluru from Dharmasthala in Dakshina Kannada district have been advised to move their vehicles on Charmadi Ghat road or any other alternative route.

The superintendent of police said, “It will be difficult for heavy vehicles to move on Charmadi and Madikeri roads and hence their movement has been banned on the road.

“We are waiting the official order from the deputy commissioner,” he said.

    I call it Shirap Ghat. Never ending problems. This is a lifeline road, but all the contractors have failed.

    A soil testing system based on the climatic conditions to be in place when such Engineering projects are being executed. Is it possible to be implemented by NHAI. Soil testing is a part of any Industry or Infrastructure development and will be performed during initial phases of a project.

    He is taking nonsense actually. Bigger companies have higher overhead capitals and so they dont match upto L1 cost of tender. Smaller companies have lower over head caps and bag the tender and do cost cutting easily byy giving low quality.

    Soil below the road melted due to excessive rain or removal of hard soil from the upper surface?

Pray for safety of the surrounding people...
