A team of experts is expected to script a plan today for removing the remains of an Austrian barge that crashed into Bratislava’s Stary Most bridge on March 26 with a load of 40,000 tonnes of wheat. It is feared the bridge pillars have been seriously damaged. The bridge has been closed to traffic since the accident, whose causes remain unknown.
