The slow pace of construction of a bridge here, which is yet to be completed by the MCD after it began in 2008, prompted the Delhi High Court to retort that even a child admitted in nursery that year would finish schooling before the structure could be built.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar made the observation while noting that the work was still at the stage of awarding of contract for building a foot-over bridge (FoB) and an underpass on a railway crossing, despite the inauguration of the West Delhi project.

“It is very painful as a citizen of the country and also as of this city. Why don’t you admit that you are not capable to do the work? It’s simply a bridge,” the bench said, adding that “it is not a 10-year plan of the government”.

“A child who was four years old at the beginning of the construction of a bridge here is now about to finish his schooling but the work is yet to start,” it further said.

The sharp observations came when the high court bench was informed that the BJP-run Municipal Corporation of Delhi was yet to complete the construction of an FoB and an underpass on a railway crossing, at Nangloi and Sultanpuri, respectively, in West Delhi.
