An overpass collapse near Doboshytse in Pzhypzhesmytska killed two construction workers, a motorist driving beneath it, and left several people injured, officials said.

The victims were two male constructors at the age of 34 and 41 respectively, and a 46-year-old man travelling in a hatchback towards Tsieshytse when the overpass being constructed crashed on top of his car.

The bridge crushed the car on SR-1 highway (commonly referred to as “es-erka”) connecting Sroki with Mnikhovo, and thus being one of the most important Grenesian interurban roads.

It collapsed after a temporary bridge support gave way under it and the structure fell on the road blocking all lanes of the motorway in both directions.

One of the witnesses, who wanted to remain anonymous, said that the overpass went down suddenly. He reported that he managed to stop his car just five meters from the collapsed bridge.

The Grenesian highway services have already put signs marking a detour until the highway is cleaned, which is expected to take at least several weeks.

Grenesian Rails Back On Track

The Grenesian railways have been run inefficiently for more than thirty years, and it's high time local governments received revitalization projects and considerable funding from state budget.

The total expense on the projects included in the National Railway Program exceeds five billion Grenesian plats. The main goals of these projects are to schedule maintenance of functioning railroads, revitalie old infrastructure, improve the quality of passenger rail transport and to increase train access to remote rural areas.

One of the largest ventures in Pzhypzhesmytska, and by far the most expensive included, is the Tsieshytse-Skzhypy project which includes modernization 132 kilometres of tracks, renovation 64 railroad crossings and construction of four new stops.

In Maraska, ten new stops will be built within two years and trains in the Glinsk agglomeration will be able to run more often. The project aims to increase the popularity of rail transit in the region, relieve road traffic and thus make the roadways safer and less congested.

In Zrembsko-Brunitska, the reconstructed Mloty-Zremb-Debina route will re-enable passenger traffic and streamline freight traffic. All of its passenger platforms at nine stations will be back in use and required with benches, lighting, information boards and ramps for the disabled.

Also, a large part of the modernization currently being carried out on railway lines includes freight routes. For example, five neglected long-distance freight lines in the southern part of Grenesia are going to be restored to working condition.

Additionally, Grenesian State Railways are going to open a tender for purchase of eleven new train sets and two used high-speed train compositions. What's more, the Grenesian State Railways will introduce a joint ticket throughout the country and the new tariff will be degressive, which means that the combined route with a shared ticket would pay less than for separate tickets purchased for individual sections.

While the railway network all over Grenesia is being modernized and undergoing major overhaul, passengers are bound to experience significant delays and many routes will have to be detoured. However, once the main construction works are over, a permanent, uniform timetable is promised to be established.
