Collapsed beam shakes motorists' confidence

The collapse of a concrete beam in the Ville Marie Tunnel Sunday has further erroded an already-shaky confidence in the Montreal's road infrastructure.

Transport Quebec officials say the 15-meter long concrete beam could easily have killed motorists.

Monday, the Parti Quebecois called on Transport Quebec to release the reports from all the inspections conducted on Montreal's infrastructure. (The reports were released after the show on Monday.)

Radio Noon host Bernard St-Laurent askes listeners "What would it take to reassure you?"

To help answer questions about why this happened, and what could be done to prevent more incidents like this, we were joined by Maud Cohen, president of the Quebec Order of Engineers and Martin Lemay, PQ MNA for Sainte-Marie-Saint-Jacques.
