Puttur: The restoration and widening work of Shiradi ghat road is progressing as expected and is expected to be opened for traffic in second week of June this year.

12.38 kilometres of road concreting work has been taken up for the second phase of the roads development work. Of this, ten km road work has already been completed and national highway authority officials expect the remaining work to be completed by the end of May this year.

After GVK group failed to undertake road work as agreed, Ocean Construction from Mangaluru was entrusted the contract work and they began work on the road immediately after the highway was closed for traffic from January 20 this year. Though the company was given 18 months it complete the work, in view of urgency, it undertook work day and night and completed major portion of the road work. Rainfall experienced during the recent weeks did impede the work. If the rain does not play spoilsport, the work is expected to be completed by May end say the contractors.

Three new bridges have been built in the second phase of work, duly widening the existing bridges and providing protective walls on both sides. Work on minor bridges too has been completed.

The roads laid in ghat section are prone to braking due to the soft mud beneath; therefore the road work is being undertaken here by laying geo textile sheet at the bottom before spreading crushed stones and laying concrete slabs.

The road concreting work at Shiradi Ghat is progressing rapidly and that unless heavy rainfall hampers the progress of work, the road could be ready for traffic by June 15th, confirmed officials of National Highway Authority of India.
