The bridge connects Moradabad-Budaun with the Jalalabad-Bareilly-Etawah state road. District Magistrate Inder Vikram Singh informed that it was recently repaired after a complaint was lodged. On Monday morning, there was no traffic on the bridge. He said that one of its pillars sank following which a section of the bridge came to the ground.
