Here is a TOI article from 4 days ago. Anmod is still closed for road work, so am a bit confused on contradictory news that its now open for traffic.

The Chorla Ghat highway saw a landslide, which blocked all heavy traffic movement between Goa and Karnataka. As the
Anmod Ghat route is already shut for sometime now for highway expansion work, Chorla Ghat was the only road route at
present connecting Goa to Karnataka. If the road is not cleared shortly, essential supplies like vegetables, for which Goa largely
relies on Belgaum will be affected.

I hope by last week of August you will have option of travelling through Chorla or Karwar. I would not recommend Anmod ghat as it is still incomplete.

Will be travelling from BLR on the 15th. I believe NH4 upto Hubli is fine, is that correct?
Rohan, it is still closed for traffic. Since there was no option for locals to travel when Chorla ghat was closed, they opted to travel through incomplete Anmod ghat. Even I was under impression ghat is opened officially but that is not the case.

SR-71, locals are using this ghat despite being incomplete.

Sincere apologies if post by me has created confusion.

Update from Local News Channel

Thanks, no issues.
Could you suggest a route to take for coming to Goa from Bangalore?
Now that Chorla, Anmod and even Amboli ghats are closed, it looks like the route thru yellapur - Ankola - Karwar is my only option?

I'm planning to travel on 15th morning. Would be of great help if you could share status of road conditions on your date of travel.

Thanks.

That has been the traditional bus route for many years now. However the roads between yellapur and ankola were closed until friday due to flooding. Please check up on the current status. I believe there was an update about someone successfully using the haveri - sirsi - kumta - ankola - karwar strech this weekend. One could use this stretch as an option to reach goa.

+1 to that. It would immensely help if folks driving on 14th update the thread on the road conditions. I am still open to driving on 15th depending on positive responses

Even I am traveling to Goa on 14th August through the same route : Bangalore - Kunigal - Yadiyur - Channarayapatna - Arsikere - Kadur - Tarikere - Bhadravati - Ayanur - Yadehalli - Sagar - Honnavar - Kumta - Karwar - Vasco

Hopefully things should be fine (fingers crossed).
Jab okhli mein sir diya to musal se kya darna.

I will update the road condition after reaching Goa.

Thanks mate, much appreciated. We're planning to stick to NH4 for as long as possible and therefore want to know which is the best place to exit NH4 for Sirsi, if we're to take the Sirsi - Kumta route.
Does anyone know which is the best route for Sirsi from, say, Davangere or Ranebennur?

Take via Haveri. Broad road.

So my dad called up Ksrtc and enquired about their Goa Airavat services. Services resumed today and apparently they'll be taking the usual route via Karwar. Which would mean that the Yellapur - Ankola - Karwar route is open. Please correct me if I'm wrong about Airavat's usual route.
