BMC to repair five bridges and two FOBs in Mumbai

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has taken structural repair works of five bridges and two-foot overbridges (FOBs), costing Rs 11.51 crore in Mumbai.

Three bridges – Sitaram Selvam Y bridge, Annasaheb Patil bridge in Byculla, and Olivant rail overbridge at Mazgaon – and two FOBs near the Bhandari police station and masjid east-west near the Masjid railway station in Masjid Bander will be taken for the repair works, according to the BMC officials.

The structural repair works are estimated to be finished within 18 months from the work order date issued to the contractor and will cost Rs 11.51 crore. The municipal body has finalised a contractor for this particular project. A proposal in this regard is being kept on hold, as no decision was taken in the standing committee meeting on Wednesday regarding the approval of the repairs work.

The decision of BMC came after a structural audit of these bridges, and that of the FOBs found that they are in poor condition and need major repair.

The officials said the motorists using the bridges would face inconvenience owing to traffic snarls, during the repair. All three bridges are crucial to travel from north to south and vice-versa.

A senior official from the bridges department said that these bridges are quite old, and the structural audit discovered that they require strengthening.

On March 14, 2019, after the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) Himalaya bridge collapsed, the BMC ordered a re-audit of about 300 bridges across the city.
