SHAME!!... Another accident. News reports states the trailer responsible for this collapse had anything between 47 (IBN7 TV) to 58 Axles (The Telegraph). Times of India states that the bridge collapsed due to earth quake. 8 People were killed. Whatever may be the reason...
When will the transporters and contractors learn?
As per an official, the bridge had a capacity of 70T but the equipment was 100T.
Anyways.. that fact remains that modernization of project transport industry cannot take place until we stop rushing execution of transport projects. In any infrastructure project in India the transportation part is considered as the last concern. This notion has to change. Logistics and Transportation are the life blood of any project. Negligence is unacceptable here.
