The new even inadequate (width of the culvert). The wall thickness of the culverts manufactured after 2012 should not be less than 35 centimeters, while all the precast grilles in the new line are manufactured below 35 centimeters. ”
Another remarkable detail in the report was that there are no information and documents about whether the bridges and culverts found in the line are suitable for the 500 annual flow account of the State Hydraulic Works.
