LAHORE, May 22: A portion of an under-construction overhead pedestrian bridge on Ring Road collapsed on Wednesday.

The incident took place in Defence Phase-IV near Kamahan village which led to the blockage of traffic on Ring Road. It is the second incident of bridge collapse. Earlier, one such pedestrian bridge had collapsed on Ring Road near Harbanspura last year and a truck driver was killed when the structure fell on his vehicle.

A CDGL spokesman said the construction work on the pedestrian bridge had been suspended after the Ring Road Authority had objected to its quality. He said the traffic was blocked for sometimes to facilitate the officials to remove the structure.
