zaheer ahmed | 5 years ago | Reply This bridge was a example of completing in shortest possible time and now it is giving problems after 15 years of service whereas it was designed for 50 + years. The rapid construction always give bad name to the Govt. Political figures push the projects to completion as early as possible but hurry is always does not benefit, so the quality is compromised in hurry and the Contractor get Benefit of more profit..
