"As per initial information, it appears that a steel girder which was erected for building the foot-over bridge at Mohan Nagar collapsed. Few injuries have been reported. However, we are verifying more details," a DMRC official said.
"The Chief Project Manager and General Manager of DMRC have reached the site to take stock of the situation," he added. The bridge was being built for the Dilshad Garden-New Bus Adda section of the network.
The stretch of metro extension, which is over 9 km, is will have eight stations in Ghaziabad - Shaheed Nagar, Raj Bagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala, Hindon and the New Bus stand.
"This is the maximum number of U-girders ever launched in any Metro corridor in India within a month. DMRC used six special trailers to transport the girders and six special cranes," a DMRC statement said.
