Reuters exclusively reports Italian prosecutors widen probe over safety of Atlantia-operated bridges

Reuters revealed that Italian prosecutors have widened an inquiry into suspected safety breaches at subsidiaries of Atlantia to include more employees and viaducts than they identified last month. The safety inquiry follows a 2018 Genoa bridge collapse which killed 43 people and has led Italy’s co-ruling 5-Star Movement to call for the motorway concession of Atlantia, the biggest Italian toll-road operator, to be revoked.
