On August 14, 2018, we all witnessed the tragic collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Italy, one of the longest concrete bridges in the world when it opened in September 1967; it spanned 1,102 metres and was both a significant and
integral part of Genoa’s infrastructure. A few months later, on December 19, 2018, the announcement
was made that a new bridge was to be immediately constructed as a replacement and the new bridge was to be christened the “Genoa-Saint George Bridge,” and the vision for the construction of a new steel bridge, that would set new standards in efficiency for a project of its size and complexity. This session will give an overview of this project.
