Zuari bridge safety comes into focus, demands rise for audit, maintenance

The unfortunate incident on the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday that cost the lives of four people from Loutolim prompted many to raise questions about the condition of the Zuari bridge, particularly the roads. The crash railing or barriers along the bridge showing clear indication of stress has led to demands for a safety audit and proper maintenance. Officials on site, while speaking off-record, pointed to the dilapidated barricades that show clear signs of stress and deterioration. The compact SUV smashed through the barriers of the bridge and plunged into the river.
