Takekazu Kaneko (bottom C), president of Central Nippon Expressway, operator of the Sasago tunnel, visits the tunnel scene where part of the inside wall collapsed near the city of Otsuki in Yamanashi prefecture, 80 kms west of Tokyo on December 3, 2012. Japan ordered inspections of ageing highway tunnels on December 3 after a fiery collapse that killed nine people, as suspicion over the cause of the accident centred on decaying ceiling supports.
