Traffic disrupted at Tokkottu as hi-tension wires land on road

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Feb 4, 2016 : Traffic on the National Highway at Tokkottu came to an abrupt halt for over half an hour on February 3, Wednesday evening after a high tension wire  broke and fell on the road.


The mishap took place at the spot where the NH works are underway at Tokkottu. A tree alongside the NH was felled and was lifted through a crane when it fell over the electric pole which came crashing down.

No sooner  the high-tension wires landed on the road,  a tourist vehicle from Kerala immediately passed over the cables. Locals as well as NH workers who noticed sparks, immediately halted traffic on either sides thus averting casualties.

The road was cleared for traffic after the cables were later removed by the NH workers as well as MESCOM  employees.

Is the crane operator a fresher? Then why was he so careless in hitting the electric pole.

Before going ahead with the NH road work the construction company has to inform to MESCOM to avoid any such danger. Luckily no one is harmed in the incident.
