The material was inferior to what they stated, both in quality and quantity, police said. This posed a major risk to stability and safety.
They allegedly paid bribes to avert detection. The men, Francesco and Salvatore Nicchiniello, worked all over Italy, police said.
The Naples-basd probe involved the towns of Villa Literno and Lusciano. Italy has seen a number of bridge collapses. The worst was in Genoa in August 2018, when 43 people died. ■
