TTD Welcome Arch falls down as Lorry hits; leads to traffic jam
The TTD-erected welcome arch on the major route from Tirupati R.T.C bus stop to Ramanujakoodali has collapsed unexpectedly. The Lorry driver caused an accident when it crashed with the arch without realising it. At the same moment, a hoarding collapsed on an approaching vehicle. Fortunately, everyone in the vehicle made it out unharmed. The welcoming arch collapsed into the road, causing a three-hour traffic jam. As a consequence, devotees and tourists encountered significant problems. The welcoming arch was dismantled with the assistance of Srinivasa Sethu's construction firm Afcon, and vehicle movement was restored.
