223 bridges to undergo repair works across Mumbai

After surveying all the 344 bridges in the city, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is finally giving orders for the repair work of 223 bridges. The bridges include foot overbridges (FOB), flyovers, skywalks, and even rail overbridge (ROB).

Of the 344, 176 bridges require minor repairs and 47 bridges require major repairs. Considering that the surface area will not be affected since a greater part of the repair work involves strengthening the bridges, traffic will thereby not be affected.
