Mumbai bridge collapse: Piyush Goyal inspects the restoration work

MUMBAI. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal inspected the restoration work being carried on at Andheri railway station where a road over bridge collapsed earlier on Tuesday, halting rail services on Mumbai's western suburban section completely.

He said an inquiry by the Commissioner of Rail Safety has been ordered and the report is expected within 15 days. The Railway Minister said about 500 rail personnel including experts from Delhi and Lucknow are working on a war footing to fully restore the services.

The railway minister added that a joint safety audit of all the 445 bridges on Mumbai's suburban route will be conducted by railways, Mumbai civic body and IIT, Mumbai in the next six months and any necessary design or construction repair will be carried out as recommended.

The collapse of a slab of the Gokhale Road overbridge on Tuesday morning injured 5 persons, and the condition of one among them is said to be serious. The bridge connects Andheri East and Andheri West.

Earlier, train services of the Western Railway came to a halt for a short while after a part of a road-over bridge collapsed this morning in Mumbai's Andheri. Fortunately no train was passing beneath the track at the time of collapse. The services were later resumed.
