Moju River in Para, North of Brazil – Barge strikes Bridge
On 6 April a pusher tug and barge collided with a bridge spanning the Moju River near Belem in Brazil. The bridge was badly damaged following the impact and its anticipated that it will take up to a year to repair. The Moju River is an important waterway for feeding cargoes to and from Brazils inland production areas and disruption may be expected whilst the wreck and bridge sections are moved.
