Bologna Launched the People Mover Bridge over the A14 Highway
Work continues on the construction of the People Mover in Bologna, which, once completed, will link the airport and railway station in Emilia-Romagna’s capital.
In the past few days, the central beam of the bridge was completed, which will allow the People Mover to pass over the A14 highway. This was a major step forward in completing the entire project.
Designed by Architect Massimo Iosa Ghini of Iosa Ghini and Associati, the bridge, called the “Link”, spans 90 meters. Designed to allow the extension of the underlying highway with two lanes in both directions (as foreseen by the “Passante di Bologna” project), after the completion of the central span, within a month it will take on its definitive shape with the two portals, made of sheet metal grid, that will be mounted on the backside of the bridge and will become an element of strong recognition for the Bologna area and its People Mover serving the airport.
