Panaji:Nearly 80 Portuguese-era bridges in Goa are in dilapidated condition, which would be undertaken for repairs immediately.

Goa government had began an audit of all the Portuguese era bridges in the  state last year. The exercise had started after 50 people were thrown in water when bridge collapsed at Sanvordem village.
“We have identified 80 bridges, most of whom are small culverts, which are in dilapidated condition,” state public works department minister Sudin Dhavalikar told reporters today.
He said that all the bridges identified are from North Goa while audit for south Goa is yet to be taken.
“It will take one more year to complete audit of all the bridges,” he said.
Dhavalikar stated that either the bridges which are found dilapidated would be reconstructed or repairs depending on the requirement.

“We are auditing all the bridges which are more  than 30 years old,” he said.
