A Delhi bridge that’s slowly getting stolen



NEW DELHI: Unlike foot overbridges (FOBs) that are made, here’s the story of one that was “unmade”. Located over a busy road in south-central Delhi near Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, this FOB was constructed in September 2010. But barely months later, people started stealing its — elevator buttons, railings and even bricks — until it was in such a dilapidated condition that the PWD shut it two years ago.


Not much has changed since then except that the last remaining railing too was recently stolen. Now, agencies will decide on the future of the FOB, built at a cost of Rs 4 crore and once used by at least 10,000 pedestrians per week, a source said. A go nment offi al said accidents started to rise ever since people stopped using the bridge while it was being taken down bit by bit by drug users and thieves.



“Once the structure is made, it is police’s responsibility to ensure things are intact,” said the offi al. However, a police offi al said no compnt was made about parts of the bridge being stolen.


When it was inaugurated in September 2010, the FOB had steel railings and lifts on both sides. It was built within six months for pedestrians walking between JLN Stadium and Sai Baba temple.

Whatever we might say about our glorious past and our culture, it is a bitter truth that dishonesty and rowdyism is in our genes.

I have heard of passengers looting mugs and chains from rail coaches. Recently I read a news item that passengers looting pillows, towels, blankets from AC coaches. Now show their looting skills like this. Well, everyone wants to see India a developed country. But not like this.
