Genoa -

Work is proceeding: today, the span 4-5 will be raised, while this week seven Piers out of eighteen will be completed

Work continues on the construction sites of the new bridge. Today, on the west, the core of the 4-5 span has been raised together with four lateral carters, while in recent weeks the lateral carters of the 5-6 span have been raised and assembled: the bridge thus begins to take on the final shape, recalling the hull of a ship.
Still on the west, Piers 7 and 8 have been completed and, while work continues on the raising of Pier 2, that on Pier 3 has been completed and, on the ground, the assembly operations of Spans 3-4, 6-7, 7-8 and 8-9 continue.
At the same time, on the east, work is being done on the raising of Piers 11, 14, 15 and 18; work is continuing on the plinth of Pier 13 and on the subfoundations of Piers 16 and 17, while work on the plinth of Pier 12 has been completed. Still on the east, the work on the ground for the assembly of the segments for spans 13-14, 14-15 and 15-16 is proceeding at a rapid pace. Work also began on the foundation piles for Piers1 and 3, and on the abutment A of the ramp connecting to the A7.
At the end of the week, seven of the eighteen Piles of the new bridge will be complete, and it will be possible to see two consecutive spans.
