ENGINEERS warn up to 300 more bridges are at risk of collapse in Italy - as it's revealed 20 more people are feared dead following the Genoa disaster. Around 70 per cent of the country's of 15,000 motorway bridges and tunnels were built more than 40 years ago and hundreds are not designed for today's heavy traffic. Lack of investment, poor maintenance and the involvement of mafia-run building companies using poor quality concrete could all contribute to more deadly disasters like the one on Tuesday. “They have problems that, if not addressed in time, could potentially lead to structural failures,” a leading structural engineer told La Repubblica newspaper. “The problem is not so much knowing which structures are at risk, but having the money to finance repairs and maintenance,” said the expert, who asked to remain anonymous. Among the structures he claimed was at risk was the Magliana Bridge in Rome, which flows between the city centre and the capital’s … [Read more...] about Hundreds more Italian bridges and tunnels at risk of collapsing including a major tourist route from Rome airport, experts warn
Domino's This week, Domino's announced that it has started paying construction crews to fill potholes in towns across the US. The goal, according to the food-delivery giant, is to protect its pizzas. Experts say the initiative is part of a wider trend of companies taking over the upkeep of civic services traditionally funded by government.

Domino's has already worked with several cities, … [Read more...] about Domino’s is repairing roads, and experts say it reveals a troubling trend in American spending
Viet Nam News HCM CITY – More than 100 scientists, researchers and practitioners from 12 nations are taking part in the three-day International Conference on Sustainable Development of Civil, Urban and Transportation Engineering (CUTE) 2018, which opened in HCM City yesterday. “CUTE 2018 provides an international forum on the latest technologies and research in these engineering fields,” Prof Lê Vinh Danh, president of Tôn Đức Thắng University, the organiser of the conference, said in his opening speech. Prof Geert Wets, from Belgium’s Hasselt University, said that sustainable development was an “urgent demand” and that civil engineering has a significant impact on the environment. “It is reported in numerous studies that civil engineering is responsible for several important problems such as energy consumption, CO2 emissions and natural resource depletion,” he added. Alternative solutions have been sought … [Read more...] about Transport must be sustainable: experts
Imagine you had complete control of the U.S. government: What one thing would you do to reduce the country's staggering economic inequality?It's no small task: The 400 richest Americans control more wealth than the poorest 80 million households, and as the richest citizens continue to capture the lion's share of new wealth — the top 5 percent has captured 74 percent of the wealth created in this country since 1982 — the situation is only growing more extreme.But while there's consensus that America is a wildly unequal country, there's broad disagreement on what, if anything, should be done to address that. That's certainly true in Congress, where disagreement and deadlock have consigned meaningful action on inequality to the realm of the hypothetical.That doesn't mean we shouldn't ask what could happen. And in that spirit, we asked experts from across the ideological spectrum what they would do to address inequality if they were king (or queen) for a day.Their … [Read more...] about How 12 experts would end economic inequality if they ran America
