Presently, only two-wheelers are allowed on this road.  The direct road link  between Sullia and Madikeri has been cut off.

Senior officials including additional DC G Prabhu, Tahsildar Anil Kumar and KRDCL Mysore Divisional Executive Engineer  Ashok inspected the road. Heavy rains coupled with unscientific works has led to the collapse of the road, feel locals.
