Public Works Department Minister H D Revanna said that the Shiradi Ghat stretch will be open for vehicular movement by July 5.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a review meeting of PWD and national highway-related works in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts on Tuesday, he said that the work on the stretch is almost complete.

About one week would be required to complete all the pending works. It will take 10 days for curing of the concrete stretch of road, he said.
