The bridge connecting Alamba in Kudremukh National Park to Kukkuje Cross in Kuthloor in Belthangady taluk collapsed on Wednesday. It was built 45 years ago.

After the collapse of the pier, Naravi Gram Panchayat as a temporary measure had built a temporary road in the rivulet for the vehicles to ply. Now, the entire bridge has collapsed.
