Cracks on flyover in Thane; closed for vehicular traffic

A flyover in the Bhiwandi power loom town of Thane in Maharashtra developed cracks and was closed on Wednesday for vehicular traffic.

A slab of the Rajiv Gandhi Flyover developed cracks. A "crater" was formed on the bridge after some of its cement plaster fell off, an official of the Bhiwandi Nizampur Municipal Corporation's Disaster Control Cell said.
