The Czech Mining Authority fined on Friday the Metrostav building company one million crowns, or less than 60,000 US dollars, for the collapse of Prague’s Blanka tunnel that occurred in July. The authority said the firm used a wrong technological method in the construction of the tunnel. July’s collapse was the third that occurred since the start of the construction in 2007. When finished, the 28-billion crown tunnel complex will be part of the Prague ring road.
