Mangaluru: 'Decision on repair, reconstruction of Maravoor bridge soon' – Kota Poojary


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jun 16: Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary, said that a committee of experts will consider all the aspects and submit a report within two days as to whether the damaged Maravoor bridge has to be reconstructed or repair works will suffice. He said that the bridge, which suffered a depression on Tuesday, would be dealt with as per the advice of the experts and the grant needed for the same would be got released by taking up the matter with the chief minister.

Speaking after checking the crack developed in the bridge, he said that a sum of Rs 50 crore has been sanctioned to develop the bridge into a four-lane road and that a new bridge is already under construction by the side of the current bridge. He said that the officials have been instructed to speed up the work and see that it is completed by February next.

He said that it was decided to take up repair of the old bridge after the new bridge is built, as otherwise traffic on this stretch would have to be barred for three months pending repairs. He said now that the bridge is damaged, experts committee will decide the future course.

After the pillar - 8 of Maravoor bridge on national highway 67 sunk three feet down, crack has appeared. He said that using the bridge for vehicular traffic now is unsafe and therefore traffic has been suspended.

    Jossey Saldanha, Nallasopara : Was nalin the contractor? in that case if you talk about pumpwel, why don't we blame local mla, local corporators and contractor as well? Contractor was jagmohan reddy, whose father was CM of Andhra from Congress party :) .. which party he was belonging to and which party he is supporting now? during the same nalin kumar gurpur bridge has been constructed within 15 months and from local contractor mugrody. Mugrody has done exceptional work in bridge construction as well as around 1 km extra road also widened as part of bridge. If you have not visited recently, please do come or ask ur relatives (100 percent ur relatives will be here in mangalore) to send you the pics of new gurupur bridge.... infact appreciation should go to mugrody construction for construction and not nalin. In the same way pumpwell as well...

    Because of Congress you are still alive and staying in India. Don't blame Congress or Nehru. First blame your big boss Modi for the disaster of India. Congress build the nation and your big boss and 40 chors destroyed everything within 7 years.

    Bridge contractors must give 20 years guarantee, 15% of the contract money must retain with government till 5 years from work order completion. If these kind of problems happend with in guarantee period, contractors permit must be suspended for next 20 years. When tax payers spend for infrastructure why not expexcting quality.
