Friday's deadly stampede that killed 23 people in Mumbai, many found pressing against the railings, has spurred the government into action. Hours later, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal ordered officials to cut the red tape and start working on shorter deadlines. The minister also told them to identify critical locations prone to similar tragedies. This also means that the safety audit shouldn't just look at structural stability of the bridges but also assess if it was enough for the number of passengers that it catered to.
