Monsoon season: Culvert collapses in Bihar’s West Champaran

Patna, July 8 (SocialNews.XYZ) Bihar is grappling with significant infrastructure challenges as bridges and culverts are constantly collapsing due to heavy monsoons.

The latest incident took place on Monday in Bagaha sub-division of West Champaran district, where a culvert collapsed in Sapahi village. The incident disrupted normal life as the road was a key route for residents of 25 villages in three panchayats.

A culvert was constructed on the main road from Sapahi to Belwa block, which was constructed five years ago. The culvert and the connecting road collapsed due to continuous rain.

Residents say the recent collapse of the city exposes the poor quality of development work carried out by the administration. The road and culvert were reportedly repaired only two months ago.

The villagers hold the contractor and engineer responsible for the collapse, alleging unfair practices and collusion between officials and the contractor. They have also filed a complaint with the Block Development Officer (BDO) and Circle Officer (CO) of the region.

The rising water level in the Gandak River is creating a flood hazard in many areas of Bagaha.

This is the 14th incident of a bridge or culvert collapse in Bihar since June 18.
