Verna: The company which has been tendered the work of constructing fly over has claimed that the afternoon’s incident of scaffolding collapse is due to the imbalance.
Dilip Buildcon, in a statement issued, has said that the four workers were injured in the accident.
“At around 12.30 hours, the scaffolding being erected between pier 61-62 of package 3, collapsed because of imbalance. Of the four workers injured, one has leg fractured, one has bruises and other two have minor scratches,” the statement reads.
The company has said “thanfully, there has not been loss of blood/casualty. All injured are shifted to GMC, out of these four, three will be released after first aid treatment.”
Dilip Buildcon Limited prides itself on its impeccable safety and quality records. We have been working since April 2016 with an accident free record.
Prima facie, this scaffolding failure is most likely due to soil displacement from the hillock, it adds.
