Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP) 

Mangaluru, Nov 7: Urgent repairs are being undertaken for Gurpur Bridge which is located on national highway 169, on Thursday November 7. 

A release from the office of the deputy commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district said that movement of vehicles on this bridge has been banned from 6 am to 6 pm on November 7 during which period repair work is being undertaken. 

The vehicles have to take Kaikamba-Bajpe-Maravoor route when coming to the city from Moodbidri or via Kaikamba - Polali and B C Road. Vehicles going towards Moodbidri have to take Maravoor bridge-Bajpe-Kaikamba and Moodbidri, the release stated.

Taking into account the wretched state of the bridge and connecting road, the people are doubtful about the effectiveness of the repair that is conducted in a hurried manner within a day.

    Do not waste money on fixing this ancient relic. Build another next to it and demolish this.

    There might be small inconvenience to public, but atleast some progress is happening of Gurpur is happening. Once the bridge is ready, Mangalore to Karkala via Moodbidre 4 laning work will take place.
