At least 25,000 road bridges are in a worrying state, warns a Senate report unveiled Thursday ordered the day after the collapse of the Genoa viaduct in Italy, which had killed 43 people. The senator of Eure, in Normandy, and president of the mission of information on the safety of the bridges Hervé Maurey estimates Thursday at the microphone of Nikos Aliagas that the State must act.
"If it were to happen a disaster" ...
The report first points out that the exact number of bridges is not known. He estimates it between 200,000 and 250,000 of which 25,000 are in bad condition. Now that this state of affairs has been established by the parliamentary report, the senator believes that "if a catastrophe should happen, if the government does nothing, it exposes itself and exposes the French."
