83 Bridges Under Police Monitoring as Heavy Rainfall Floods Roads and Submerges Key Bridges in Belagavi District
In the Belagavi district, certain districts were blocked off from other villages on Thursday due to heavy rain. Many towns were still shut off from the primary Roads. Authorities reported that commuters are taking safe alternate routes.
The Bhojwad-Kunnur Road at Sadalaga, which was cut off owing to rising Veda Ganga water levels, and the Mangawati-Rajapur Bridge, which was inundated by rising Krishna water levels, are two of the main roads that have been closed. Commuters pass through the village of Manjari on their way to work.
To get to the Vittal temple in Hunnur village, access through the Hidkal dam’s backwaters has been strictly forbidden to the general public. After a delay in rainfall, the temple arose this year and drew an impressive number of worshippers.
“83 bridges in the Belagavi district are being watched by teams of the District Police. They include bridges over streams and rivers. Many of them are flooded or overflowing, making travel dangerous. If there is water covering them or there is a chance that the rivers and streams could overflow, police and other department officials in the relevant taluks are pleading with people not to use them, said Superintendent Police Sanjiv Patil.
The Gokak-Singalapur Bridge was still shut down. Additionally, as water began to flow across the Jatrat-Bhivashi Bridge, vehicle movement was halted.
The road leading to Rumewadi Cross as well as the bridges over the Hallatri Nala in Khanapur have both been closed. However, following lessening rains, the Khanapur-Hemmadaga Road, where vehicles were left stuck on Wednesday, has been reopened.
Dr. Patil traveled to Khanapur and nearby areas. He noted that commuters in the rural parts of the taluk had to navigate potholes on a number of roads, raising the risk of accidents. To lessen the likelihood of traffic accidents, “we have written a letter to the chief officer, Town Municipal Council of Khanapur in Belagavi District, to repair the potholes immediately,” he stated.
The inflows into several dams have somewhat increased in the interim. However, the outflow remained at 194 cusecs. Inflow into the Naviluteertha Dam over the Malaprabha at Saundatti increased to 10,437 cusecs. The dam currently contains 4.6 tmcft as opposed to a 37.3 tmcft gross capacity.
There was a 20,814 cusec inflow into the Raja Lakhamagouda Reservoir over the Ghataprabha at Hidkal and a 98 cusec outflow. In contrast to its gross capacity of 51 tmcft, the dam now has nine tmcft of water. The Dhupdal Weir’s input and outflow were 10,973 cusecs each.
Between 80 and 90 millimeters of rain fell in Belagavi District in the previous 24 hours, according to officials. The upcoming three days are supposed to see a lot of rain.
