    @ Banjaru Male, Kukkavu bridges rebuilt within 24 hours_It is oaky and commendable job by the district administration.But what about the life of the bridge.Will it be a temporary bride or last longing.Any guarantee?.Is it worth for the movement of the light vehicles.If it is worth for the movement of the light vehicles,it can attract more tourists thereby district administration can generate more income because of tourists visiting this area.Whether work done on this bridge on record time is dependable or after few months another bridge to be built within eighteen hours.
    Whatever be your time,whether it is 24 hours or 48 hours,let bridge be very strong and sustainable at least in the best interest of the public who use this bridge on daily basis as their easiest mode of link connecting both ends.Anyhow congratulations for the entire team for completing this bridge in a record time of 24 hours.

    This place is not less than Kashmir. But building the bridge at the same height which washed away is not a logical approach but only a temporary solution.

    I would request the District Administrator consider the bridge for light vehicles movement so that this place can be used for tourism that will generate the income to the local people. The local's cal also uses it to sell forest products for additional income.
