Sand, wood truck movement banned across Kodagu district-1

Bengaluru:Kodagu district administration has banned the movement of all the sand and wood trucks across the district. A decision in this regard was taken as a precautionary measure.

According to an order issued by the DC Annies Kanmani Joy, this ban has been imposed keeping in mind the safety of the roads in the monsoon season. KSRTC buses, fuel tankers and school vehicles are exempted from this order.

According to the authorities, last year too such a decision was taken. "The road connecting Madikeri from Kushalanagar is very sensitive. Keeping in mind the fact that movement of heavy vehicles may further damage the roads and bridges, this decision has been taken," explained an officer.
