Rescue members stand at the site of a footbridge collapse outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station in Mumbai, March 14, 2019. 42 people went missing after a bridge collapse after a British-era bridge was washed away near Mahad on the Mumbai-Goa national highway on 4 August 2016.

Four fire brigade vehicles and two ambulances have reached the spot for rescue operations. Some minor damage was detected which was yet to be repaired, he told reporters. The removal of the collapsed bridge's steel frame began on Friday. He further said, "Weeks before an audit of the bridge took place in 2018, the BMC changed the tiles at the bridge".

Fadnavis also said he had ordered a re-visit of all earlier structural audits carried out on such structures. "This is the failure of the government and the system", he added. BJP MLA Raj Purohit has demanded stern action against the audit team which failed to take precautionary action.

The issue of dilapidated bridges in the city came to fore after the Gokhale Bridge at Andheri collapsed a year ago. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had then announced a joint safety audit of all 445 bridges in Mumbai.
