Boat Service Connects Two Villages after Hanging Bridge Damaged

Boat Service Connects Two Villages after Hanging Bridge Damaged

August 28: The massive floods on the River Nethravathi on August 9 and 10 had washed away a hanging bridge built across the river at Bedrodi. Due to this, the residents of Mogru, Uruvalu Padavu, Bandaru and Belalu villages had to travel 30 km via Ilanthila, Kuppettu to reach Uppinangady. The damage to the bridge had caused a lot of inconvenience to the school and college students travelling to Nelyadi, Uppinangady.
The district administration restored connectivity by arranging boat services between Mugeradka in Mogru village of Belthangady taluk and Valalu in Bajathuru village of Puttur taluk.

Bandaru Gram Panchayat development officer Mohan Bangera said that the boat will provide service to the residents from morning till evening free of cost. Belthangady MLA Harish Poonja has promised to pay rent of Rs 60,000 a month for the boat service. At a time, nine persons can travel in the boat.
MLA Harish Poonja has also proposed to construct a vented dam-cum-bridge to help the residents in the future.
