In Uttar Pradesh (UP)’s Shahjahanpur, a section of the Kolaghat bridge on the Ramganga river collapsed and fell down. The pillar of the section sank into the ground days after it was repaired following a complaint.

The bridge was reportedly in dilapidated condition for many years now. Last month, it had collapsed from the middle.

No one was hurt in the accident; however, a car was stuck in the middle of the bridge as it was crossing the bridge at the time of the accident. The occupants of the car suffered minor injuries.

The bridge connects Moradabad-Badaun with the Jalalabad-Bareilly-Etawah state road. Immediately, the traffic was stopped and vehicles were diverted. On Monday morning, the district magistrate confirmed that there was no traffic.

After the accident, movement on the Shahjahanpur-Delhi highway has come to a halt. The administration has reportedly made diversion of vehicles towards Allahganj.

In such a situation, vehicles coming from Badaun and Delhi can take two kilometres ahead of Mirzapur police station from Tarapur Tiraha to Farrukhabad Road via Alhaganj.
