Bikers skid on Noida road due to oil spillage
Noida: Several two-wheeler riders skid Thursday on a key road stretch here after oil
spillage from a transformer, eyewitnesses and police officials said.
The oil got spilt after a transformer being carried by a crane fell on the road stretch on the elevated corridor near the ISCKON temple in Sector 33 here, a local official said.
Eyewitnesses said vehicular movement continued on the slippery road stretch.
“Several people slipped because of this oil spill but the authorities did not stop vehicle movement on this stretch,” Krishna, a motorcycle rider, said while picking up broken pieces of his bike’s rearview mirror after his accident.
Traffic police officials said sand and mud were spread on the road stretch to minimise the impact of the spill.
“The vehicular movement has not been impacted on the road. Some measures were taken immediately to fix the problem,” a traffic police official said. Purported video clips surfaced on social media, which showed several two-wheelers falling on the road stretch and parts of their vehicles getting damaged.
