Fix responsibility for bridge collapse by Friday evening: Maharashtra CM

3 Tragedies In 2 Years Highlight Mumbai's Crumbling Infrastructure

The bridge of which part collapsed used to connect Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station Platform 1 north end with BT Lane, says Mumbai Police.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's preliminary report about the collapse of a foot overbridge in Mumbai on Thursday has attributed the incident to an "irresponsible structural audit", The Times of India reported. "Senior officers are on spot", Mumbai police said. "However, we're extending all our support to the victims". The foot over bridge is often referred to as the Kasab bridge. "Why was it not closed until the work was completed, it'll also be probed", he said. Injured persons have been shifted to Gokuldas Tejpal (GT), St George and LTMG hospital at Sion.

Traffic between CSMT and Crawford Market has been affected.

Despite the fact that it hasn't been a year since the Andheri bridge has collapsed, yet another incident took place in the prime area of South Mumbai last evening. "Railway doctors & personnel are cooperating with BMC in relief & rescue operations", Ministry of Railways said.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has announced Rs 5 lakh ex gratia each to the kin of deceased and Rs 50,000 to the injured.

There was a heavy noise and cries of people who had fallen from the bridge. And that "it required minor repairs for which work was underway".

Fadnavis also said he had ordered a re-visit of all earlier structural audits carried out on such structures. Our investigation will be independent of the action taken by the civic body.

Tawde meanwhile said an enquiry into the collapse would be conducted by the Railways and the BMC. "This is the failure of the government and the system", he added.

"This incident puts a question mark over the competence of engineers and structural auditors who inspected bridges in Mumbai". The bridge was constructed in 1984, about 35 years ago.

"I have sought a custody of documents related to the structural audit".
