MILAN May 12 Italian infrastructure group
Atlantia said on Friday its toll-road unit Autostrade
per l'Italia had been placed under investigation by prosecutors
in central Italy after a motorway bridge collapsed earlier this
year killing two people.
Autostrade per l'Italia operates the A14 motorway connecting
the cities of Bologna and Taranto. The overpass collapsed on
March 9 as works were under way to expand the motorway's three
lanes south of Rimini.
Atlantia said ASPI's legal representative had been notified
of the inquiry and that several group managers were also under
investigation in the relation to the accident.
