Road caves in

Following heavy rain in Suntikoppa, Madapura Road near Swastha School on a state highway, caved in. When the PWD personnel attempted to repair the road, water gushed out from the pothole.

Vehicular movement on the road was affected. Vehicles had to take an alternative route through Kanbail-Nakuru-Shirangala-Gundukutti.
