Gammon India not responsible for Flyover Accident

The government of Andhra Pradesh had constituted a high level committee to investigate the collapse of flyover @ Hyderabad. The findings of the report sent to us in a fax message is as follows,

The committee reported that the heavy rainfall in Hyderabad (on the day of the accident) and the trench dug near the temporary structures by HMWSSB resulted in the erosion of soil and subsequent loosening of the foundation of temporary structures of the flyover. The committee noted that the failure was not of the main structure but the temporary structure (due to rains) and hence absolved Gammon from any claims of negligence in handling the project.

Thus Gammon India will have no impact on obtaining or bidding for further large tenders.
