Portion of Palasuni flyover sinks
Bhubaneswar: Panic gripped commuters after a portion of Palasuni flyover on National Highway 16 in Bhubaneswar sank on Sunday evening.
Sources said the portion near the flyover’s edge close to Hi-Tech hospital Chowk developed cracks and caved in by six inches at around 6 pm.
Noticing the newly-developed crater on the busy road, personnel of Traffic Police and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) cordoned off the area and filled the collapsed portion with sandbags to avoid any mishap.
The locals were dismayed and alleged that inferior work has led to such an incident.
