At least 10 workers were injured when a portion of a support slab of an under-construction flyover collapsed near Panaji on Wednesday, a police official said.

The support structure between two pillars of the flyover crashed around noon at Verna village in South Goa district, located 15 km from here, he said.

A police team rushed to the spot to take stock of the incident, the official at Verna police station said.

“Work on the flyover was under way when the incident happened. Ten workers were injured and they were taken to the Goa Medical College and Hospital,” he said.

The flyover is being constructed as part of the national highway project connecting Panaji to Margao city, which is located 30 km away.
