The authorities had prohibited movement of vehicles and the those heading to the airport as well as Kateel were told to take alternative routes. PWD Executive Engineer, Mangalore, Yashavanth said that the slab had sunk about 2.5 feet. It was lifted to its original position using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Work on complete restoration of the bridge was being carried out on a war footing.
