Hi buddy my self did Mangalore-Udupi twice.
The roads were nice till 4 th July 11.
But my 2nd visit to Mangalore again was bad, as roads were damaged by the gas tankers plying on that stretch.
The stretch of Shiradi ghat has gone beyond recognition.
Check the latest condition of this stretch as on 24 July 11.
The starting of Shiradi Ghat is fine, but the stretch in the middle has gone bad.
Mangalore-Udupi is fine though road construction is going on, so lots of turns and deviations are there.
The main entrance of Udupi is closed due to road construction you will have to take detour to small road before reaching Udupi city.
Even heard from my cousin that stretch of Bangalore-Srirangapattanam-Eliva route-Hunsur-Virajpet - Madikeri
stretch is Superb.
But from Madikeri- Sampaji ghat
is bad upto Sullia
Then from B.C.Road you can take the flyover route, then to mangalore takes hardly 30 mins.
Then follow Surathkal route- Manipal-Brahmavar-Udupi route.
Which car are you commuting ? Shiradi Ghat stretch
