Udupi, July 19, 2018: The unscientific and substandard four-laning work with insufficient service roads and crossings, which had led to many accidents along the national highway 66, Kaup police had registered first information reports against the project director in the department of national highways, and also contractors of highway construction, Navayuga Infrastructure under the direction of Udupi district administration. This move by the district administration has finally woken up the two institutions.
As a result, the contracting firm Navayuga Infrastructure has taken undertaken the work of filling of potholes on the national highway on a war footing now. They are also clearing the dividers off of weed and other vegetation.
Earlier, the district administration had summoned Navayuga officials and highway official to its office and warned them to take corrective action, but failed to evoke prompt response for them.
Following the depression in the road at Muloor which subsequently gave rise to accidents, the district administration took note of the issue and directed Kaup tahasildar to register police complaint.
