Demolition signals beginning of reconstruction for deadly Italian bridge.
Work to demolish Genoa’s Morandi bridge, which partially collapsed last August killing 43 people, has begun ahead of its reconstruction.
Project planning and deconstruction of the remaining parts of the bridge superstructure started on 15 December 2018; but now major sections are being lowered to the valley floor as first important step during the full demolition of the bridge.
Those works are taking place under the watchful eye of national and international media, the Italian authorities and RINA the certification, inspection, testing and engineering consulting multinational charged with overseeing the project.
The new bridge is valued at approximately 200 million Euros and is expected to be Europe’s most expensive.
