Four people sustained injuries after scaffolding erected for the construction of a major bridge across the Zuari river collapsed on Wednesday. In a statement issued by Dilip Buildcon Ltd, the infrastructure company which is constructing the bridge said, "Prima facie this scaffolding failure is most likely due to soil displacement from the (nearby) hillock".
"Thankfully there has not been loss of blood, casualties... Dilip Buildcon prides itself on its impeccable safety and quality records. We have been working since April 2016, with an accident-free record," it further read. The eight-lane Zuari bridge connects districts of South Goa and North Goa. Injured persons have been admitted to Goa Medical College and Hospital. (ANI)
