Destroyed During Kerala Floods, This Road Was Rebuilt In Just 6 Month

The road is now fully serviceable.

A video of a road cave-in taken during Kerala floods had gone viral last year. The visual was taken from Vandoor village in Malappuram district which showed the road getting destroyed by a strong current of water.

Six months on, the road has now been rebuilt and is fully functional. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on February 11 posted a video that showed how the road was rebuilt. At first, it was the Indian Army which came to help after it constructed a temporary bamboo bridge. Soon after, the state public works department took charge and reconstructed it a cost of Rs 25 lakh in a record time of just six months.

The Kerala floods in 2018 claimed over 480 lives with losses being pegged at around Rs 20,000 crore
