(I'll go a little OT here. There is no right turn from anywhere to anywhere. So when people have to take a right, they don't go that extra mile and take a U-turn, they stop in the middle of the junction, turn right a wee-bit, back-up a little and wait with the traffic coming from their left and move straight when the signal permits. People keep moving even when the signal goes red and the cops literally stand in the way. This way, the junction has people everywhere, all the time.)
When the construction company knows that it is building it there, they should be extra careful. Not just extra, as careful as they can get. Whether it is the planning or implementation, the fault lies with the company.
I called the situation premature because everyone seemed to blame it on the rains and there could have been other reason(s).
Wow! Am I impressed or what!

If the flyover was being built using pre-fabricated sections, why do you need scaffolding. The pillars are first constructed and then the pre-fab structures are placed over it.
Scaffolding is used if its not a pre-fab and the scaffolding needs to be present until the structure above connecting two pillars cures.
This latter is how they did in Bengaluru on airport road. It was present for more than a month and thousands passed below it.
We used to lament that this is a really low-tech company (UP bridge construction). This is the reason it took years to build the flyover.
