LAHORE: A portion of an overhead pedestrian bridge on Lahore’s Canal Road collapsed on Monday after a trailer collided with it.

The vehicle was carrying a heavy generator of Orange Line Train project that suffered damages after the debris of the overhead bridge fell on it.

A crane from the project was sought to transfer the machinery that was being taken from Thokar Niaz Baig to Mugalpura.

Following the accident, the Canal Road was closed for one-way traffic which severely affected the movement of vehicles.

Rescue teams removed the debris of collapsed bridge and the generator after 8-hour effort. The road was opened for traffic afterwards.
