Collapse of the Morbi Bridge: A few months ago, there was a major bridge collapse incident in Morbi, Gujarat. Hundreds of people were killed in that incident. The provisional report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the government has been published in this case. SIT’s investigation revealed the primary cause of the bridge collapse. The SIT said that the company’s prior approval was required for the agreement between the Orewa company and the municipality of Morbi. Only Orewa Company, Chief Municipal Officer, President and Vice President were on the contract.
The SIT said that the company’s prior consent had not been taken and the issue of consent had not been raised at the company’s meeting held after the agreement. The settlement may have been made by the municipal commissioner of Morbi without the prior approval of the General Council. There are many more shocking revelations in the SIT report.
In this accident, the remaining 27 wires were broken
The report of the SIT also revealed that the head, president and vice-president of the municipality of Morbi did not properly address the issue of the settlement. Repair work carried out without consulting an authorized technical expert. The main cable and vertical braces were not inspected before repair work began. Investigation revealed that 22 of the 49 cables had already broken and the remaining 27 wires had broken in the accident.
The bridge disaster killed 135 people
Jaysukh Patel, general manager of the Orewa Group, surrendered in court last year in connection with the bridge collapse in Morbi. On October 30 last year, 135 people died and many were injured when a bridge collapsed in the Gujarat town of Morbi. Patel’s company was responsible for the operation and maintenance of the bridge.
