rome - The Italian minister Danilo Toninelli (Traffic) thinks that there should be headlines at the operator of the disaster bridge in Genoa. 'In the first place, the top of Autostrade per l'Italia has to get on', said the minister. He warned that the company can also expect a substantial additional tax.
Toninelli thinks that Autostrade per l'Italia, a subsidiary of toll road operator Atlantia, has not made agreements. He has instructed his ministry to withdraw the concession and to impose substantial sanctions that can rise to 150 million euros based on the contractual conditions.
A top employee of Autostrade previously denied that there was negligence. Stefano Marigliani told the Reuters news agency that the bridge has been continuously monitored. According to him, that supervision went much further than the law prescribes. The partial collapse of the bridge would therefore have come as a surprise.
