Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray inaugurated the Kopar Bridge on Tuesday. However, question marks are being raised about the work of Kopar bridge on the work of contractors in Kalyan Dombivali. Because the haste and passive quality of the work has come to the fore through the potholes on the bridge. Will the leaders who took credit for the construction of the Kopar bridge now take credit for this first pit? Citizens are asking such questions on social media. In addition, on social media, citizens have criticized the corporation by targeting the leaders by viralizing the pictures of the pit on the Kopar bridge. Meanwhile, Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation has given an explanation on this.
The corporation has said that, “Kopar flyover connecting Dombivali east-west was completed by the corporation in a short period of 1 year and 4 months. Asphalting on this bridge involves mastic asphalt. However, it takes about a month to complete the work of mastic asphalt and it requires hard wool. The work of mastic asphalt was postponed and the flyover was started with a layer of asphalting bitumen. . ”
Traffic flows smoothly
“It was also raining heavily while working on the bridge. Therefore, potholes were expected in some places on the corner bridge. The pit that fell today is on the side of the railway expansion joint, it has been filled immediately and care has been taken to ensure smooth flow of traffic. Mastic asphalt work will be started in the harsh summer after the rains stop after Dussehra. Similarly, it will be mandatory for the concerned contractor to carry out the repair work at his own cost ”, explained the city engineers of Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation.
