NDTV Published on Jul 8, 2018
Heavy rain has once again exposed the poor maintenance of railway footbridges in Mumbai. Within a week a third bridge has developed cracks. The bridge at Ghatkopar station was closed after cracks were seen on Saturday. On July 3, the southern end of the Andheri railway bridge collapsed, severely injuring a woman, who later died in the hospital. The next day, the bridge on Grant Road was closed after cracks were noticed. The bridge was later reopened after engineers inspected it and said they were superficial.
