Within the security audit performed in 5 zones of the state on the directions of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, 36 bridges of Uttarakhand have been discovered unfit for site visitors.
Officers mentioned that the PWD division has submitted the security audit report of 2618 bridges out of 3262 within the state to the federal government.
RK Sudhanshu, Principal Secretary, PWD division instructed ANI that the federal government has acquired the security audit report.
He mentioned, ‘The federal government has given directions to arrange a bridge financial institution in order that new bridges may be constructed in time.
The officers had been directed to submit the audit report inside three weeks, as the federal government was planning to switch the outdated and dilapidated bridges with new ones.
The security audit was performed by the Public Works Division (PWD) on the instructions of the CM, issued on November 3, within the wake of the Morbi suspension bridge collapse.
No less than 135 individuals had been killed and over 100 had been injured when a cable suspension bridge collapsed in Gujarat’s Morbi metropolis on 30 October. The Indian Coast Guard, Indian Navy and Nationwide Catastrophe Response Drive (NDRF) together with the native administration and different companies have launched a search and rescue operation on the web site of the 143-year-old Morbi bridge collapse.
In July, an under-construction bridge collapsed in Narkota space on the Rishikesh-Badrinath freeway throughout heavy rains, injuring greater than half a dozen employees.
