Hyderabad's famous Purana Pul shut after cracks develop on pillar; traffic diverted

The famous bridge across the swollen Musi river - Purana Pul, was shut for traffic after cracks were noticed on one of the pillars. Police said traffic coming from Hussaini Alam and Bahadurpura side and from Karwan and Ziaguda on the other side was diverted. The traffic police barricaded the bridge on both sides late Sunday after one of the pillars was found damaged. Some of the commuters also complained of vibrations. The Purana Pul is a key link between the old city and areas like Karwan, Dhoolpet, Ziyaguda, Mehdipatnam, Asifnagar and Tappachabutra on the other side.
