Chikkamagaluru: Restrictions have been imposed on movement of heavy vehicles from Tanikodi to S K Border on NH 169 (Mangaluru to Solapur) from June 15 to August 15 as a precautionary measure amid the rainy season. An order was issued by District Deputy Commissioner Dr Bagadi Gautham in this regard on Friday evening. The minor bridges on the stretch at Umbalagere, Goravanahalli and Gulaganji are in a dilapidated condition due to the heavy rains lashing the district. Hence movement of heavy vehicles has been banned. As an alternative, all the vehicles (below 15 tonnes) from Chikmagalur can travel via Baliho Nur-Magundi-Kalasa-Kudremukh-SK Border. The vehicles from NR Pura (below 15 tonnes) should travel via Koppa-Hariharapura-Bidaragodu-Agumbe.
