Bangalore to Goa Road Status

Hello,

I am planning (accommodation already booked) to travel to Goa from Bangalore on 14th August by 2 cars (Honda City and Swift Dezire).
Based on the latest news, there is flood situation in and around Goa.
I called up my hotel and they confirmed that driving may be problematic.

Anyone has done this route recently or any information?
People from in and around Goa may share some valuable information.

A major crack on the road halted traffic on the Mumbai-Nashik highway in Maharashtra's Kasara Ghat. The crack developed on Monday night after heavy rainfall. Pictures of the cracked road were circulated on social media. The photographs are from Kasara Ghat in Maharashtra. Officials are currently carrying out repair works. Earlier, KSRTC officials had told TNM and multiple other news outlets that the picture was from Karnataka-Maharashtra border. However, this article has been updated after a clarification from the Maharashtra State Highway police on Tuesday evening.

Getting many such messages:

- *Kolhapur* town is flooded, and all roads leading to/ from it are closed, including all ghat roads down to the Konkan Coast. Areas around Kolhapur like Ichalkaranji, Chikkodi, etc too are facing flooding.

- *Pune* city sees flooding & occasional road closures, including on the NH4 ByPass. The Expressway to Mumbai sees temporary closures from time to time.

- All roads to / from *Mumbai* are open, although the *Mumbai - Nashik* HiVay is seeing some restrictions due to road damage.

- Heavy rains continue in the Peninsular region & the West Coast, expect more roads to be affected. Specifically, in the *Malnad Region* of Karnataka, heavy rains have already closed down the *Charmadi Ghat* between Hassan & Mangalore, and there is significant risk of flooding in many parts of coastal Karnataka & the ghat roads.

- Heavy rains in *UK* led to temporary closure of the HiVays to *Badrinath & Kedarnath*.

- Some parts of *Kerala* are seeing very heavy rainfall currently, but barring the *Kannur - Mysore* HiVay, no major disruptions is seen so far

Overall, it is difficult to predict what will be heavy rain/ dam water release situation in the next few days, so motorists are advised to *avoid non-essential travel* & keep tracking updates here & in the *Monsoon 2019 thread*
