March 31:Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday appealed to Governor N N Vohra to order a safety audit of two flyovers under construction in Srinagar and Jammu.
“I am sure the contractors building the flyovers in Jammu and Srinagar are taking all precautions,” Omar said while reacting to the news of an accident at the construction site of a flyover in Kolkata.
“The flyover project in Srinagar allotted by JKERA to a private construction company passes over a major road of the city. The road has shops on both sides and every day tens of thousands of people pass right beneath the under-construction flyover. An accident similar to the one in Kolkata would have devastating consequences in terms of loss of life and injuries to people,” he said in a Facebook post.
