Kyiv Administration Names Metal Corrosion As Reason For Collapse Of Paving Of Shuliavka Bridge

The Kyiv city state administration says metal corrosion caused by overload was the reason for the collapse of the paving of the Shuliavka bridge.

Kyiv Mayor / Head of the Kyiv City State Administration Vitali Klitschko announced this to the press, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"According to findings of the expert commission, the reason for the collapse of the bridge's paving was metal corrosion caused by overload on the bridge due to heavy transport vehicles," he said.

He says there is no threat of further collapse of the bridge.

Following a complex study of the technical conditions of the bridge there will be reconstruction.

According to Klitschko, the authorities plan to restrict movement of heavy transport on the Shuliavka bridge.

As at 11.35 a.m., the traffic of public transport on the bridge is restricted, but the traffic may partially resume in some time.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Kyiv city state administration says the previous inspection of the technical conditions of the Shuliavka bridge was in 2012.
