    Tushino tunnel open for traffic once more

    MADI and a Vize Mayor explained the most probable reason for the drama.
    First the good news. no one was hurt or injured or even worse, killed. the accident happened during a time when there was very light traffic only. and obvious, the Moscow Channel is closed because of winter. and also ahs less water then i nsummer when shipping commences.
    reason for the flood. 2003 they dug the tunnel expanded the road under the channel that flows above. 4 lanes, the tram lines, and what have you. most probably the ceiling was then not braced strong enough to hold all the weight over the water over this wide distance.
    Our good Mayor was of course on the site, very subdued his speech. like he seems to know something that -we- should not know. But -everyone- can be assured all is safe and all will be fixed for the shipping season to open normally and on time in Apri/May.
