    there are many such loose concrete chunks in the over head metro track ( these chunks were either left due to poor cleaning after the girder placing OR these were the poorly placed concrete in the joints between parapets.) Now when the bus passes on the bridge , the vibrations are made as the bus moves from one span to the other. these vibration causes the loose chunks to fall. Leaving such loose concrete at such a structure under which people pass is criminal. what will happen when there will be earthquake??? moreover when travelling in metro bus and the bus moves into the bus stop (usually at high speed ,due to the careless bus driver) the bus itself bumps up and down, one can see these vibration will launch loose concrete chunks from the track. The track should be immediately inspected and all loose concrete , and loose repairs must be removed to save the life of people.
