Goa's Public Works Department Minister Sudin Dhavalikar on Friday said all Portuguese-era bridges will be audited for their load-bearing capacity.
Dhavalikar's announcement come a day after three persons were killed when a dilapidated foot overbridge on the Sanvordem river in Curchorem village collapsed.
"We will have to do an audit to ensure that such incidents are not repeated," Dhavalikar told reporters here.
Over 40 persons fell into the river on Thursday evening at Curchorem, 45 km from Panaji, when the bridge collapsed. While most managed to swim to safety, three persons drowned.
