Hanging bridge at Balegadde nearing completion

As villagers were demanding for a hanging bridge between Balegadde and Khandya, the government sanctioned Rs 45 lakh. The construction work, which was going on a fast pace, is nearing completion and is expected to complete within a month. Villagers here were using traditional boats to cross Bhadra river to reach their destinations.

It can be recalled that three of a family had died in a boat mishap in September, 2009. MLA D N Jeevaraj had visited the spot then and had assured villagers of sanctioning fund for the construction of hanging bridge.

Accordingly, the work was taken up and now the villagers are eagerly waiting for the completion of work.
