New Bridge at Ullal Closed for Five Days
Mangaluru: A new bridge parallel to the old one across Netravati river at Jeppinamogarul and thrown open to public use a couple of years ago as part of dualization of the national highway. This had also eased the pressure on traffic between Pumpwell and Thokkottu.
The old bridge was recently closed down for repairs and restoration. With this work being completed three days ago, now the new bridge will remain closed for five days since it too needs maintenance work and inspection of weight endurance.
The highway officials have requested motorists to drive with care and caution during these days.
