Gap develops on Lajpat Nagar flyover in Delhi, authorities say don’t panic

The 6-8 inch gap appeared between two girders at Ashram-Lajpat Nagar Flyover in New Delhi.

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: An 8-10 inches wide and around 10 feet long gap has developed between one of the five girders at the flyover on Wednesday, raising safety concerns among commuters. One carriageway will be closed for traffic from January 1 till the repair is complete.

For two weeks drivers moving towards Moolchand from Ashram will have to take the road below the flyover. Officials of the Public Works Department (PWD), who will carry out repairs, said there is no need to panic as the gap is a result of natural contraction of girders and will be fixed soon through special joints brought in from Bhopal.
