Probe sought into Hero Chowk flyover collapse

Gurugram: The Centre for Disaster Management Gurugram has demanded a comprehensive investigation over portions of new flyovers of Gurugram caving in.

On May 8, the portion of Hero flyover in Gurgram had collapsed. In less than a year for the second time, the portion of Hero Chowk flyover which has been made operational just one- and a half years ago caved in.

Earlier in June 2018, the part of recently built flyover at the Delhi-Jaipur highway came out all of a sudden six months before it was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Haryana. Last year, a portion of Rampura flyover also collapsed.

There are claims that how in order to hasten the process of opening the flyover, most of the basic processes of construction were flawed. Facing flak over the entire incident the public officials have as of now refused to comment on the matter. The massive crack has just been one of the incidents of the new flyovers that have come up at the National Highway-8.

Recently there were cracks that were witnessed on two occasions at the Hero Chowk flyover.

Taking cognisance of the danger that these cracks pose to the commuters the NHAI officials have closed the stretch and begun the maintenance work. Slated to be completed within 30 months, Hero Chowk was completed in the record time of 15 months.
