The bridge, which was over 100-years-old was in a dilapidated condition and declared dangerous for use, due to which officials were forced to tear down the structure on Monday.
This step was taken after auditing was ordered for all bridges constructed over rivers. It was during the audit that this bridge was declared dangerous.
A proposal to construct a new bridge in place of the erstwhile bridge will soon be sent by the authorities.
