Ahmedabad Flyover Collapse: Potholes Develop After Rain, Notice Served to Construction Firm

Latest newsAhmedabad Flyover Collapse: Potholes Develop After Rain, Notice Served to Construction Firm

In a concerning turn of events, the recently inaugurated Sanathal Flyover Bridge in Ahmedabad has developed potholes just three months after its opening due to heavy rainfall. Authorities have served notices to the construction company and the project management firm involved in the bridge’s construction.

The Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) took action against the contractor and consultant responsible for the Sanathal Flyover Bridge, which succumbed to damage after encountering heavy rains. AUDA officials reported that the bridge’s drainage system proved inadequate or poorly constructed, leading to water accumulation during the rain. The incessant flow of vehicles on the bridge further exacerbated the situation, resulting in multiple potholes.

The Sanathal Flyover Bridge, situated on Sardar Patel Ring Road, was inaugurated on March 10 of this year. However, the bridge’s premature deterioration has raised concerns about the quality of its construction.

Upon receiving reports of the deteriorating conditions, the contractor attempted a temporary fix by applying mud to the affected areas. However, this makeshift solution proved ineffective, prompting AUDA to take swift action.

Built at a cost of Rs 96 crore, the 1.3 km long Sanathal Flyover Bridge aimed to alleviate traffic congestion on Ahmedabad’s Ring Road. Given the bridge’s current state, both the contractor and consultant involved in the project received notices demanding an explanation for the collapse.

This incident follows the tragic Morbi bridge accident, where 141 lives were lost, further highlighting concerns about potential corruption in the construction of infrastructure projects in Ahmedabad.

Authorities have emphasized their commitment to conducting a thorough investigation into the matter and holding the responsible entities accountable for the bridge’s premature collapse. They are determined to take stringent action against any wrongdoing in the construction process.

The incident serves as a reminder of the critical importance of ensuring proper design, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure projects to guarantee public safety and longevity.
