We talk about infrastructure maintenance as if it were something theoretical. It isn't. These are the kinds of things that happen. These type incidents will become more common as many of our buildings, bridges, tunnels, dams, etc, are passing their planned life expectancies and very little money is available, or being spent on, maintenance or upgrades. Older building inspections need to be stepped up, and landlords allowed to recoup their upgrade costs through higher rents. We, as a society, need to invest in the infrastructure that we already have before embarking on building any more new.
