According to information, the incident took place around 5 am. According to preliminary information, the bridge was built in 1982-83. Kumar said that the bridge was under repair for the last few days. Locals suggested that this may have happened due to heavy rains in the past few days.

Two bridges over the Gandaki river collapsed amid heavy rains in Bihar’s Siwan district on Wednesday morning. According to a report, this is the seventh such incident in the state in the last fifteen days. The small bridges connected Maharajganj to several nearby villages located in the Deoria block of the district. No casualties have been reported so far. Siwan has witnessed three incidents of bridge collapse in the last 11 days. Deputy Development Commissioner Mukesh Kumar said that the exact cause is being investigated. He said that senior officials of the block have already reached the spot.

According to the information, the incident happened around 5 am. According to preliminary information, the bridge was built in 1982-83. Kumar said that the bridge was under repair for the last few days. Locals suggested that this may have happened due to heavy rains in the past few days. The collapse will potentially weaken the structure of the bridge due to the rise in the Gandaki river. In another incident, a bridge was built on the Gandaki river located in Dhamhi village of Maharajganj block. This bridge also collapsed within no time. After the collapse of three bridges one by one, the employees of the Gandak department and the district administration have reached the spot and started taking necessary measures.

The incident comes just 11 days after another bridge collapsed in Siwan, raising concerns about Bihar’s infrastructure. On June 22, a portion of a bridge collapsed in Daraunda area. Similar incidents were reported in districts like Madhubani, Araria, East Champaran and Kishanganj recently, forcing the Bihar government to form a high-level committee to investigate the incidents.
