Ponte della Costituzione

It seems Ponte della Costituzione just can't stay out of the news.  Not even a year ago, it made local headlines when a group of local boys drove a small car over the bridge.  This week, it's a damaged marble piece on the Piazzale Roma side of the bridge. It makes me sad to see this as I pass by each day. I wonder how in the world anyone managed to break off a piece of marble.  And I wonder how it will be repaired, if at all. For a bridge so new, it certainly has it's share of problems.

And, it really hasn't worn all that well, in general, it seems. The glass steps that looked quite spiffy when new, are so scuffed and abraded. Is the little 'pod' working yet?

I sure hope they use 'their' heads when (if) they replace the Accademia Bridge. :-(

Wow, that's a real shame. Are they talking again about replacing the Accademia Bridge?

..There are a lot of people who hate that bridge.. but they still shouldn`t brake it.
It was kind of funny to see the photos of that car driving through though.
I think the bridge is needed for that spot but it is a bit uncomfortable to walk when you are in a hurry cos the steps are irregular.
