As the forest department does not allow the widening of the roads going through the western ghats, it is expected that a tunnel will be built, same like as proposed by Japanese consultants to the shiradi ghat of NH-48. A tunnel will help in reducing the travel time by 3 hours, reduce the fuel usage and increase the productivity of the industries around. It will also provide an alternative route to the large sized trucks transporting materials to the seaport and air-cargo facility at Mangalore .
