PWD tells se­nior of­fi­cers to in­spect foot over­bridges

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - METRO -

NEW DELHI: The Pub­lic Works Depart­ment (PWD) of the Delhi govern­ment has di­rected its se­nior of­fi­cers to carry out “per­sonal in­spec­tions” of all foot over­bridges (FOBS) to en­sure main­te­nance, clean­ing and func­tional es­ca­la­tors at th­ese fa­cil­i­ties.

Ac­cord­ing to the PWD, the move comes af­ter sev­eral re­ports were re­ceived by the depart­ment that the main­te­nance of sev­eral FOBS was not up to the mark.

The is­sue was taken up by the engi­neer-in-chief at a meet­ing at­tended by se­nior of­fi­cers.

“The engi­neer-in-chief di­rected per­sonal in­spec­tions should be car­ried out by higher of­fi­cers to en­sure that proper main­te­nance/clean­ing is be­ing done and es­ca­la­tors are made func­tional in all FOBS,” the min­utes of the meet­ing stated.

Around 80 FOBS are con­structed and main­tained by the PWD. In June, the govern­ment had ap­proved con­struc­tion of seven FOBS at RTR Marg, Nel­son Man­dela Marg, ISBT in Sarai Kale Khan, in­ner Ring Road-ma­hatama Gandhi Marg (Shakur­pur vil­lage), Tamil Sangam Marg, Har­swa­roop Colony and Maya­puri.
