The news on temporarily opening of this road is there in The Hindu also -> The Hindu : Karnataka / Madikeri News : Vehicles of devotees allowed on Konanur-Makutta road

Mean while the complete opening of the road will get delayed till March'10 as the contractor saught extention from the court -> The Hindu : Karnataka / Madikeri News : ‘I am not responsible for Makutta road impasse’

I really support the former MLC, who actually mobilised the road repair.

Thanks
Rajesh

Default HD Kote - Bavali - Mananthawadi Road

Hi All,

2 days back one of my friend took the Mananthawadi - Bavali - HD Kote Road. According to him, this road is almost repaired and open. Only a few km in the exit to HD Kote is still remaining, which will be completed within a month or two. The road is now newly laid and there many road humps. ( One or two in each KM..!!).

Even in this road also, the night traffic is not allowed.

If any body has any more update on this road, please provide..

Thanks
Rajesh

How long did it take him to cover Mysore - Mananthavady? The maps show a distance saving of ~45 Kms via this route, but am wondering if this route might be faster compared to the S Bathery route.

He took less than 3hrs to reach Mysore from Mananthawadi. The distance is around 105Kms.

Thanks

I too thought of giving the original news from the Daily (mathrubhumi), then realize that not many may not be able to read the language hence only copied the text of the news!
Anyway you did the good job copying it from the web.

Lets hope for the best !
