The foundation stone for the construction of Road Over Bridge THIRD Gate (Level crossing No.381) was done on 6th Jan 2019 by Late Suresh Angadi.

The Targeted Completion was March 2020 but due to COVID deadline was extended.

But no work is undertaken since 3 months now.

Big trenches have been dug up which has no barricading or safety tapes. The work here is also on the lines of the Smart city work with no safety precautions in mind.

Imagine no workers have turned up on the site for over a month now.

Why is there such a delay is not yet known?

  1. Atleast in the memory of Late Angadi work should have been taken speedily. Now I think it’s better to bring it to the notice of Railway minister.

  2. Under the guise of the ongoing Corona pandemic, the contractor is shrinking from his commitment to stopping the work on this ROB, perhaps waiting for some catastrophe to occur at this Rly.Third -gate site….regardless of the inconvenience being caused to the general public……. Very SAD……
