Sion flyover work to begin after rains 4.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
In a major relief for motorists, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has said that the Sion flyover on Eastern Express Highway (EEH) will not be shut during monsoon considering the renovation work on the flyover has been postponed until the end of monsoon. Earlier, the MSRDC had plans to shut the flyover for renovation work in April. However, as the repair work did not get any contractors bidding for the same, it was postponed till May. A MSRDC official said, "We have not been able to appoint any contractor yet.

Crack in Kemps flyover, but BMC plays it cool 7.5.2018 DNA: India
Even as a photograph of a gap between two girders of Mumbai's first flyover at Kemp's Corner sparked panic across social media, civic commissioner Ajoy Mehta attempted to downplay it, saying "there is nothing wrong at all" and attributing it to "an old design fault". Through the gap, one can see uneven surfaces on the two sides of the 53-year-old bridge that is flanked by Altamount Road, Breach Candy, Warden Road, Pedder Road and Nepean Sea Road. The BMC says the flyover is strong enough to take load. "There is no problem with the Kemp's Corner flyover and the two girders are intact with support," said SO Kori, Chief Engineer (Bridges), BMC. "This is an old flyover. Earlier, the engineers used to retain gaps in the expansion joints, but keep the two girders intact using metal plates. In this case, there appears to be a gap and the authorities need to look into it," said SN Patankar, former chief engineer, BMC. Meanwhile, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray stated on social media that he has spoken to Mehta ...
