Tunsi overpass in ‘bad condition’: Committee

An engineering committee formed by government rail and road authorities to inspect Cairo’s Tunsi overpass, from which a car plummeted last week onto a market below before bursting into flames, found the overpass to be in “bad condition.”

According to a report issued by the committee, the overpass is incapable of bearing heavy vehicles–such as trucks–and cannot be driven over safely at speeds exceeding 60 km per hour.

The committee recommended reinforcing the passover with steel girders and stationing speed bumps along it. The committee also suggested changing the direction of traffic along the roads underneath the overpass.
