The remains of a footbridge which collapsed in Prague on Saturday leaving four people injured – two of them seriously – are being transported to a nearby concreting plant for expert inspection. The news was confirmed on Monday by Prague Deputy Mayor Petr Dolínek. Expert assessment should reveal what caused the bridge, which stood between Prague’s Troja with Císařský Island, to collapse into the Vltava River.
Prague City Hall is considering closing down several more bridges for emergency repairs, among them the Radotin footbridge and Hlavkův Bridge¨. Mr Dolínek rejected claims that Prague City Hall had neglected maintenance of the city’s bridges, saying Prague had invested 1.2 billion crowns into the maintenance of bridges between 2014 and 2017.
