FAENTINA RAILWAY BRIDGE
- Structural Design: GPA
During the Second World War all but one of the arches of the Faentina Road’s bridges were destroyed. These were later rebuilt by GPA according to the original specifications but using reinforced concrete rather than the original materials. It was also necessary to structurally improve the one intact original arch. The main works were carried out on the Palagio viaduct. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century and consists of five masonry arches each with a span of 12.5 m. The GPA’s role was the structural design of rail and road bridges, reinforcement of existing tunnels and the design and installation of new tunnels.
