Its a must avoid mess .
While returning to Bangalore around 3PM, i decided to turn left and i noticed that the truck jam had reached till 100 mtr from the main road. Immediately took U-turn and took Yashwanthpur road.

Work has restarted in April 2016 (see this report).
I think there were some land acquisition issues as well which I remember reading somewhere recently that it's been sorted. Hopefully this will be completed in the next few months.

Till the flyover actually gets completed, I will take each of these reports with a pinch of salt .

There were issues for completing this project from Day 1 and land acquisition. Things would stall, progress and stall again at every stage seeking approval or clearance.

Once the project is completed is what I will look back at each of these "Reports" and make an assessment as to which was closest to reality.

This ROB work has been a pain ever since work started.

My Sister and her family did a round trip on 4 and 5th. They left Udupi on 4th at 0600 and reached Bangalore at 1530 on a leisurely drive. Rains accompanied them till Sakleshpura after which it was fine.

They left Bangalore yesterday at 1500 and reached Udupi at 2345 with heavy rains from Sakleshpura till Udupi. Road conditions have deteriorated post the concrete roads and viisibility due to rains are low. With water logging, the potholes are difficult to predict. BC road to Udupi is just fine.

Hi,

I had put some queries about good hotels at Udupi and got a great response here. Unfortunately I could not make for the trip. I am traveling on coming weekend to Udupi for Sure and have finalized on Hotel Summer Park for stay. Any last minute suggestions would be great.

Thanks for updating with road conditions. My plan is to start at around 7AM from Marathahalli and reach Udupi in daylight via Shiradi route. Will update with details once I am back next week.

Regards,

You may want to check the Accommodation thread instead, for example this page discusses hotels in Udupi, there should be more - Search, And Ye Shall Find

Summer Park is a good choice. It's unique in a way - it straddles the way to the temple and the heart of the city. Very good veg food, but no non-veg

Do ping me if you need any help while at Udupi.

Hi Guys,

Considering the road conditions, what would be the best route to Kundapur now? I might just stick to the usual Shiradi but I was wondering if Agumbe would be a faster option if the roads are holding up.

Hi Explorer09, I drove last weekend from Bangalore to Mangalore and back, left Saturday morning and returned by Sunday evening. Used the Hassan, sakleshpur, gundya, bantwal route. The concreted sections were good, the tarred road after the concreted sections while going to Mangalore were bad in patches but still drivable. Would recommend this route, not sure if the rains have made it worse in this one week.

Latest updates anyone? Also how is the road from Gundya to Kukke? Planning to drive to Kukke Subramanya this weekend - early morning 5 am start from North bangalore.

Does it rain heavily after Sakleshpur i.e. Shiradi ghats? Is it pre-mansoon or monsoons there? I have to be in Dharma on Sunday due to a marriage on Mon morning. I may leave (KA03) Sunday after noon by 2-3 & am sure by the time I reach shiradi it will be dark. Is it advisable to drive in the rainy night (if rains) thru shiradi? Other option I'm thinking staring early morning by 3-4 on Mon morning, finish the function & drive back same day. What scares is, bad patches in Shiradi during nights.

Shiradi closed due to bridge damage by LPG tanker accident yesterday. Hence you will have to either take Charmadi or go via Gundya - Subramanya - Nellyadi.

I was planning to visit Kukke & Dharmasthala this weekend but this incident is making me rethink. Anyone has any other updates on this?

procrj> Thanks for update. I saw this in TV today morning - local Kannada channel. I think it might have closed for a day or so, not sure. I guess, by week end it will be opened for traffic. If not, as you said I will have to take charmadi route.

Travelling Bangalore-Manipal-Mangalore-Bangalore for the long weekend. Google maps is showing a route wherein we leave Mangalore Highway at Uppinangadi. But I have been advised by a few to not take this route and instead travel to Manipal via Mangalore.

It seems like a detour of only 10-15 kms. What do you guys suggest?
