The roof of the skywalk had rusted and in some places, the metal pieces are ripped off. Concrete pillars too are damaged and cement plastering slabs have even fallen on buses which move underneath. While the Majestic road has big potholes on one side, the creaking skywalk poses another danger to pedestrians who may be unaware of its condition. Regular commuters say that the authorities concerned should take remedial measures before anything untoward occurs.
A pedestrian said, “The BMTC administration is maintaining the skywal, but has ignored public safety. They are not even thinking about repairing the the skywalk and filling the potholes on the road. I commute every day and I am afraid that it may collapse some day. The authorities concerned should seriously think about repairing it at the earliest. Lakhs of people use the skywalk and the roads here every day. If any accidents happen, will the BMTC be responsible for it?”
