      Nothing major at this time. The video you shared earlier shows pile cap casting work is going to start soon. That will be followed by pier casting.

        A Similar incident happened in WDFC haryana last year where the Launching Gantry came down crashing slightly damaging a pier and delaying the project by six months. L&T was the contractor for that project also.
