Steel scaffolding collapses at Mumbai Metro site

No one was injured in the incident which took place when work was going on at the site.
The incident comes two days after an under- construction metro pillar collapsed in Delhi leaving six persons dead.

"It was a temporary scaffolding which we had put up during the construction and it fell due to the strong winds. We removed the debris in two to three hours. Work has resumed at the site," K P Maheshwari, Director of Mumbai Metro One, the consortium building the metro line between suburban Andheri and Ghatkopar, said on Monday.

"We are going to conduct and inquriy into why the structure collapsed and come out with a report," he said.

The city has been lashed by heavy rains accompanied by strong winds since last night disrupting road and rail traffic.

Water logging was reported in many areas across the city disrupting traffic.
