Although the final survey report yet to be surfaced but often this remains the case with many of the government projects, that after clearance of tenders the contractors keep on reducing the overall costing by keeping up with the cheap materials. The problem Is that these contractors never found to have punished for using the cheap raw materials or of negligence on their part.
Adding, that the remuneration packages have been announced by the CM Yogi but the losses can't be remunerated.

Even the politicians may not bother much as they might have been made happy already by the contractor and they may shout on the officials who are responsible for the supervision.
Mr.SuN, I would disagree with your comments. When we can build rockets to launch satellites, we would have good engineering technology and manpower.
With regards to similar instances, it would be the lack of transparency, corruption leading to sub standard quality of construction and failure to adhere to rules and protocols that are the major culprits.
This bridge/flyover is constructed by the state run UP Bridge Corporation and it has had projects in Iraq,Yemen and Nepal. But the recent performance of this particular company has not been very good.
With my limited knowledge of civil engineering and a very limited exposure to the construction activity, what all I can say is that a factor of safety will be applied while designing the structure. This factor of safety is mainly to compensate unforeseen site conditions while execution, quality of execution and the quality of materials.
