An excavator at work on the under-construction Dombivli rail overbridge (ROB) lost control and fell from a height of 10 feet on Monday.

The driver sustained minor injuries. As the excavator fell on Rajaji lane below, it pulled along a slab of the bridge.

The Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) and the Central Railway started the repair work of the Dombivli ROB this month after the bridge was dismantled in 15 days last month.

The KDMC said incident won’t affect the repair work of the bridge.

“It was a minor accident as the excavator lost balance and crashed on the road below. The driver sustained bruises,” said Sapna Koli, city engineer, KDMC.

The bridge was shut in September 2019 after it was declared unsafe by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay in May 2019.
