New Delhi: Slowly but surely the projects undertaken for the Commonwealth Games 2010 are turning out to be Frankenstein’s monster for the Delhi government. After being under flak from all corners for the arrangements related to the CWG 2010, the Delhi government suffered yet another humiliation as cracks emerged on a flyover which was constructed for the games.

One of the projects under the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) scrutiny is a flyover in which cracks have already developed. The flyover built under Rajaram Grade Separator scheme has developed cracks at three different parts which clearly point out the irresponsible attitude of the concerned authorities during the construction work.

Quick to come up with an alibi in this context, Public Works Department spokesperson Sudhir Kumar said the cracks can be developed owing to small problems also. “We will soon send a team to conduct inspection in this regard,” he added.

Nearly 26 schemes of CWG 2010 are under CVC scanner out of which six projects were completed by the PWD.

Situated at Rajaram Kohli Marg and Shastri Nagar Intersection in Geeta Colony, the scheme was implemented to make it a signal free area. The flyover which was constructed at an expenditure of more than Rs 200 crore was the first project that got completed for the CWG.

Meanwhile, questions are also raised on use of sub-standard materials for the construction of the flyover. The project was completed two years back which remains to be a cause of worry.

Apart from noticeable cracks, commuters also complain of tremors felt at every joint of the flyover which indicates poor finishing work.

According to residents, the cracks are developing further and the gap is also widening.
