MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's Public Works Ministry declined to comment on Monday on whether a motorway bridge collapse this month in Genoa would affect a deal between Atlantia, whose subsidiary manages the bridge, and Spanish firm ACS.

Atlantia and ACS agreed in March to jointly buy Spain's Abertis in a deal to create the world's biggest toll road operator, which still needs final approval from the Spanish Government.

A spokesman said the Ministry is still waiting for some technical meetings including with the Defense Ministry.

"These meeting have not happened because of the summer holidays," the spokesman said.
