Nashik civic authorities have started demolishing the Kannamwar bridge over the Godavari which connects Panchavati with other parts of the city. The bridge, built in 1960s on the Mumbai-Agra national highway, has weakened and therefore the municipal corporation started its demolition yesterday, said an official. Former Maharashtra chief minister Marotrao Kannamwar had inaugurated the bridge, which provided a bypass for vehicular traffic on the highway. The traffic has been diverted to the newly-constructed flyover.
A new bridge would be built in place of the one which is being demolished.
