The foot over-bridge near Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main venue for the Commonwealth Games is finally ready for use.
The 260 feet long bridge, which had collapsed on September 21, 2010, was officially handed over to the Delhi Government on Friday, October 1, 2010, for the Commonwealth Games scheduled to begin on Sunday, October 3, 2010.
Having built the bridge in just 5 days, the Indian Army has once again proved its might.
However, it is a temporary structure and will be torn down after the Games.
The under construction foot over-bridge for the Commonwealth Games which collapsed last week on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, was rebuilt by the Army on Tuesday, September 28, 2010.
The Army swung into action and had a replacement ready within a week. They used 600 men as opposed to 100 by the Public Works Department (PWD) which took 18 months.
Along with criticism of the athletes' village, the bridge collapse had created a lot of furore last week.
The foot over-bridge which collapsed outside the main venue of the Commonwealth Games, Jawaharlal Nehru stadium on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 was yet another setback for the Commonwealth Games.
