The collapse of the Ballarshah foot-over bridge should act as a wake-up call for the Central Railway (CR). The condition of Ajni ROB is the worst of all the bridges in the city.
The bridge is reported of the British Era, always having a huge traffic hazard which has been not taken care of by the railway administration.
Anil Kumar Lahoti, general manager of CR inspected all the railway bridges, railway lines, and signal systems in the Itarsi, Betul, Amla, and Parasia areas of the Nagpur railway division.
The general manager of CR later reviewed the development works in this area after discussing it with many people and senior officials.
Like the Ajni bridge, Lohapul, Dhantoli, and Narendra Nagar railway bridges are also in a bad condition and require immediate attention.
