New Delhi, June 24 (IANS) A portion of a flyover near the district centre in Janakpuri in west Delhi built only six years ago has fallen apart, disrupting road traffic. The damage was first noticed Monday evening when an eight-feet long and four-feet wide portion of concrete collapsed, exposing the iron inside.
The traffic police then stopped traffic on the flyover. Repairs have started and are expected to last at least a week, a municipal corporation official said.
The flyover was constructed in 2002 and is presently under a 10-year defect liability period with the Uttar Pradesh Bridge Corp Ltd. The company is liable for its repair and maintenance during this period.
