The new built Road over Bridge at Gogte circle named Shri Basveshwar RoB which has come up in lieu of the 110-year-old British built bridge was inaugurated on December 25, 2018, and now within in 11 months, the SWR is undertaking repairs of the same.
From Friday one Carriageway of the Shri Basveshwar Road Over Bridge (Gogte RoB) is closed for Repairs. The way from Gogte Circle towards the Shri Basveshwar circle is now closed.
The other carriageway will be used for two way traffic until the repairs are completed and then the same would be repeated for the other side.
No definite time period has been informed as to within which the same would be repaired.
Since the bridge was made open to the public there were issues with the bridge as some part of the bridge near the girders had sunk in.
Temporary filling up was taken up but that was done in a very shabby manner and now the mud seems to have sunk in a bit more.
Hence urgent repairs will be required along with regular maintenance like the painting of the girders would also be taken up.
Already the city is in under construction mode with many roads blocked for white topping and now once the police grant the permission there could be more traffic jams here as well.
