Udupi: Movement of both, heavy and light vehicles on Agumbe ghat along NH 169A has been permitted by the district administration, stated a press release issued by the DC G Jagadeesha on Saturday.

Heavy rain had caused a few landslide along the ghat road and hence vehicular movement was banned along the stretch on March 30 2019.
