A significant portion of a road of a prominent stretch at Lokmat square caved in, following heavy rain in the city on Monday afternoon, affecting traffic and forcing diversions.
A cave-in was reported in the afternoon from Gujrat Pointâ€™s side at Lokmat Square. This has also exposed the sloppy work of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC).
In the meantime, cops have restricted the traffic and put a barricade at Lokmat Square to prevent vehicles from reaching the damaged area.
The vehicles were either diverted to other stretches or allowed to ply in a single lane to prevent mishaps and avoid further damage to the roads.
Earlier today following heavy a part of a bridge near the University Library, Ramdaspeth collapsed in nullah resulting in damaging 100 mm dia water supply line.
The 30-meter-long 100-mm dia supply line washed away with flow of nullah probably early in the morning.
