Karkal Purasabha closes dangerous open well near the road

Karkal: An open well near the road which would have been created trouble for the pedestrians and motorists is closed terminating the probable danger for the public. This could happen because of the report in the media.

The Purasabha of Karkal has filled the open well to avoid any unwanted incidents during the rainy season. But the PWD department is in deep sleep without caring for anybody.

During the Mastakabhishek, the PWD and Purasbha had the contract of development of roads like these. But both did not give much importance to the matter.

Unscientific road construction

The road constructed during the Mastakabhishek is unscientific. There are no dividers in Kariyakallu-Gomatabetta road. Even the drainage facility has not been done properly. That will result in rain water flowing on the roads. The accidents on these roads are high in numbers. The buses are violating the rules are creating trouble for the people in these areas.
