Mangaluru, June 11, 2020:   The second railway underpass which  is in the final stages of construction on the National Highway at Padil and was getting ready for inauguration has suffered a big setback with  a portion of the  underpass  sinking right in the middle where a big hole has now appeared.



The project was limping since the last  two years. During the final phase of the project, a nearly three feet deep hole has appeared while levelling the  road  in a roller.  It is believed that  those constructing the underpass had not taken cognizance fo the fact that there was an underground drainage  beneath the underpass.

The underpass project was taken up at a cost of Rs 5 crore.
