Mangaluru, June 04, 2019: The flyover nearing completion constructed at Thokkottu is far removed from technical standards and the local residents are apprehensive that it could cause catastrophic incidents endangering life and limb. District in Charge Minister U T Khader inspected the flyover on June 3, Monday.

The minister, along with DK DC  Sasikanth Senthil S, inspected the flyover and directed the NHAI and Navayug officials to rectify the problems faced by the local residents.

“The pedestrian path should be constructed for people to walk beside the road. The service road should be widened to facilitate easy movement of vehicles,” he pointed out.

“The density of vehicles moving towards Ullal is high. Motorists who are bound to Ullal have to risk their lives owing to the improper technical flaws.  There is a need to find a permanent solution to the problem encountered by motorists at Thokkottu overbridge where the flyover ends,” said Minister Khader.

“The district administration’s proposal for a flyover from the service road to connect to the Ullal Road has been submitted. If the proposal is sanctioned, then a permanent solution can be chalked out. Till the proposal is realised, the officials should ensure that no accidents take place at the spot,” he instructed further.

He said a road divider should be opened at Gatti Samaja Bhavana in Kapikadu, situated 150 metres away from th flyover, to help commuters take a U-turn towards Ullal. Speed breakers should be installed on the road.

The Minister promised to convene a meeting of the DK DC and MP Nalin Kumar to find a permanent solution to the problems. The drains in Thokkottu should be cleared before the inauguration of the flyover, he urged, apart from various other pointers.
