The latest samples of soil taken from embankments of the Bratislava ring road construction project, built by the consortium around the Spanish company Cintra, confirmed the occurrence of prohibited substances, including asbestos, as reported by the Sme daily.
Asbestos, the use of which is not allowed in Slovakia, does not threaten people’s health once it is dug in the ground. However, manipulation with asbestos may be dangerous and cause cancer.
“All motorways have to meet not only the technical but also environmental criteria,” said Transport Minister Arpád Érsek, as quoted by Sme.
