According to sources when the sluice gates of Cheruthoni dam were opened on August 9 to release excess water in the Idukki reservoir, the subsequent floods and landslides took with it several lives, houses and shops at the banks of Cheruthoni and Periyar River in the district. Meanwhile even small bridges in the district were washed away, barring the Cheruthoni Bridge, which continues to remain intact, without any damage.



Furthermore it is perhaps one of the bridges in the state that survived the massive floods that hit Kerala. Reports added although the approach road of the bridge was destroyed, the Cheruthoni dam, which was submerged in the massive water flow, has not sustained any major cracks or developed any issues, say officials, who inspected the bridge.

Moreover some of the small bridges constructed by panchayats and district panchayats in Thadiyampadu, Vimalagiri, Periyarvalley, Karimpan and Vellakkayam have been totally washed out. Accordingly some these include Attukakad Bridge in Pallivasal and Deviyar Bridge in Munnar and the Aladi-Porikanni Bridge in Upputhata. Meanwhile even the widely shared video of Attukad Bridge, near Munnar in Idukki district, collapsing showed the extent of the damage. He said “A dam expert will inspect the bridge on Monday and as the approach roads are washed out by the flood, it will be a hurdle to resume the traffic in full level. The construction works of the approach roads have already begun”.
