The bridge was in maintenance, closed for trafic. I guess it was a fault during some work operation.
The steel beam seems to be riveted, not welded or assembled with screw bolts. Maybe this can give a hint how old it was. Nowadays welding or screwing are mostly used, riveting is outdated for such constructions.

It's a different case than on SS35 of last october, but with the same effect, tragically.

Live broadcasting from the disaster site. They're working non-stop to remove the ruins of the bridge and reopen the motorway as soon as possible.

Simply unbelieveble they made this work without closing the motorway, at least in critical operations.
Normally they carry out such dangerous works during the night and closing the street below

So far I've understood, temporary trestles were build to keep the platform in place, probably because they have to rebuild the abutments on both sides. These trestles collapsed, and the platform felt down.

I thought 14km are u/c and expected to be opened in March 2017. Will 7km - which are not on the pics - be opened now or is the segment on the pics even more advanced than the remaining 7km? Is there any updated estimated opening date for the section?

@mistikos: a small tip - use the focus function of your camera to get rid of most of car elements in road pics

I'll try.

On Saturday 8th April I'll travel from Cosenza to Bari: I'm going on a school trip to Greece for a week!

PS I used my Gopro Hero 4 Silver for the video

This viaduct carrying SP71 road over A23 motorway near Palmanova was damaged by an oversize transport in November 2015 but it was never repaired because of burocratic issues. In March 2016 it was closed to heavy traffic. It should finally be repaired this spring.

It's a shame that such dangerous situations are treated with such easygoing approaches (like delaying damaged bridges recontructions for years). Hopefully disasters of Lecco and Ancona will teach something.

Those are cool renderings, but I'm not sure about its effective advancement stage, or whether it will be built at all.

(and the large toll booth is a sight I hope I would never see again so deep in the new millennium...)
