The travellers between Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, and vice versa, have been advised to take a different route as vehicular traffic is not allowed on the regular route. This comes as an after-effect of Munneru being in spate at Keesars village in the NTR district. The travellers between the two places have been advised to travel via Rajamahendravaram, Eluru, Vijayawada, Guntur, Sattennapalli, Piduguralla, Dachepalli, Miryalaguda, and Narketpalli.
The NTR district police, in a statement, appealed to the public to make a note of the change in route. For further information, people can contact the police control room at +91 7328909090.
