The repair work, primarily focused on cable maintenance at the Peenya Meellethuve viaduct, aims to ensure the structural integrity of the flyover. The National Highways Authority had previously conducted repairs on the same stretch, underlining the importance of regular maintenance to uphold safety standards.

To ease the impact on commuters, the authorities have announced alternative routes during the closure period.
