The MCGM has decided to audit all bridges in the city and carry out necessary repairs. Fourteen bridges are in a very bad shape and will be attended to on a priority basis. The corporation will visually and structurally inspect all 253 bridges in city which include waterway bridges, flyovers, railway-over-bridges, foot-over-bridges and subways. The flyover bridges at Dadar, Mumbai Central and others are likely to go under repair. It has been decided to carry out such audits at intervals of five years for old bridges and 10 years for new ones.
