It’s been just a month since Delhi’s Signature Bridge was opened to public and it has already been ruined by spitting and littering.
According to a report by TOI, several nuts and bolts were found missing from the cables that connect the pylon with the surface.
As if the de@dly selfie stunts and @ccidents weren’t enough, vandals have now resorted to stealing nuts and bolts from the bridge.
Engineers of Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) expressed their shock and concern over this issue. Talking to TOI, one of the officials said:
Vandals? This is more likely the work of saboteurs. No security nor any cameras to monitor activity on the bridge?
That apart, we the people of #India whine about poor infra but piss over anything good that happens. Trains to buses to roads to bridges. https://t.co/v0aQuuEM5S

Major failure of civic society to instill a sense of collective ownership of and responsibility for the public space. Learn from Japan.
