The flyover, which connects two major hospitals in Delhi, is one of the busiest routes in the city and has now got huge four-foot deep cracks.

The daily pressure on the road is so disastrous, that it has already caused a dip and the flyover is now being held in place by “wooden” planks.

 

While all this should have already caused alarm bells to ring for the Delhi government, it seems they are not taking this matter seriously.

Further, the Delhi Metro still says that it is “perfectly fine” to use the said flyover despite the obvious cracks and dent.

“The flyover is completely safe for traffic movement. The approach will be repaired and restored shortly.”  – DMRC



The flyover, which connects Delhi’s AIIMS and Safdarjung Hospital to the western and central parts of Delhi, is one of the busiest roads in the city and never witnesses a time when there is no traffic on the road.

These cracks have been developing for weeks and were noticed by many, yet it has not stopped buses, trucks, cars and other vehicles from speeding over them.

On an estimate, around 10 lakh vehicles use this road each day, despite the construction work that is going on in the area.

 

According to Delhi’s Public Works Department (PWD), these cracks have developed due to the construction of the Metro’s line 7 or “Pink Line” in that area.

The Delhi Metro is currently using “Push Box” technology to construct underground subways, which according to NDTV has resulted in these cracks.

Though a PWD official has said people should not panic, as these cracks are only external and can be easily be mended. He has also added that the foundation of this flyover is still “solid”.
