News of the failure of the bridge at Injaka came as a shock, the images on your front cover and news pages are the nightmare scenario for all those involved in the design and construction of major bridges (NCE 16 July). That the bridge should fail is of course unfortunate, but that 14 people should die is tragic and a catastrophe, and our deepest sympathies go out to the families of all that suffered. The incident should act as a reminder as to the responsibilities of the profession.
