Panaji, March 13 (IANS) Four persons were injured after a scaffolding erected for the construction of a major bridge in Goa across the Zuari river collapsed on Wednesday, an official said.

The incident occurred in the afternoon when the metal scaffolding supporting a concrete slab collapsed, injuring the workers onsite.

“Four workers have sustained minor injuries and have been hospitalised. A probe has been initiated,” a South Goa district administration spokesperson said.

The eight-lane Zuari bridge connecting South Goa and North Goa districts is one of the poll promises of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition government.
