Karnataka Floating Bridge On Malpe Beach Collapses 2 Days After Inauguration

The first Karnataka Floating Bridge was destroyed because of the massive waves only two days after being officially open to the public.  The district administration says the Malpe beach bridge, inaugurated by MLA K Raghupathi Bhat on May 6, was shattered on May 8. However, Sudesh Shetty, the Malpe beach leaseholder and operator of Dial Mantra, denied the Karnatka floating bridge claims. He said that authorities had disengaged the locks of the bridge to prevent damage to the bridge.

Details of the Karnataka Floating Bridge

“We had to release the bridge’s locks due to the storm and heavy winds to avoid damage to the floating bridge. This morning, many of the bridge’s bricks floated in the river due to the rain.” The Karnataka floating bridge is 100 meters long and 3.5 meters wide. Three local businesspeople spent Rs 80 lakh to construct it.

 

“We discovered that some people are duping by the rumor of deaths, which we are validating. We can declare that there are no fatalities or injuries. The Karnataka floating bridge is temporarily closed due to a government notice banning water sports on the bridge.
