Ludhiana, February 19

A day after a portion of the crash barrier collapsed from the recently constructed Elevated Road near Bharat Nagar Chowk, here, MLA Gurpreet Gogi inspected the flyover on Monday and sought a probe into the matter. After the crash barrier portion collapsed, concerns arose regarding public safety.

Gogi said he visited the site along with the NHAI and other officials concerned regarding the slab fall incident, giving directions for action against the contractor concerned. He said materials used for construction would also be inspected for transparency.

He said the matter was also brought to the attention of the Deputy Commissioner. NHAI officials were questioned about flaws in a few poles and other aspects of Elevated Road. They were instructed to rectify the flaws, and a three-member committee had been formed for inspection by the authorities.

The MLA noted that the size of the roundabout under construction at Bharat Nagar Chowk, Ludhiana, is noticeably large. Officials have been directed to reduce the roundabout’s size to prevent potential traffic issues.

A member of an NGO had earlier claimed that the large size of the under-construction roundabout was causing traffic congestion in the area.
