A portion of the road beneath Mangaluru-Mumbai/Bengaluru Railway line on NH75 at Padil that has been under construction for three years by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) caved in on Tuesday, raising questions over the construction quality.
NHAI was in the process of asphalting the carriageway (from B.C. Road towards the City) when a portion of it caved in late Tuesday evening. Officials suspect presence of an old culvert beneath the affected stretch while workers were digging the stretch to know the actual cause.
Work on the Railway under Bridge (RuB) on the B.C. Road-Mangaluru carriageway commenced in December 2017.......
