The first private car crossed the new Genoa bridge, now in the final stages of construction. At 9.57 on 22 June, Pietro Salini’s car, CEO of Webuild, traveled the viaduct on the Polcevera which will replace the Morandi, which collapsed on 14 August 2018 causing 43 victims.

It was the first crossing of a “civil” car, not a service one, on the bridge that Webuild is completing together with Fincantieri and Italferr, and which is expected to be delivered to the authorities on 27 July.

“Walking up here today – said Salini – is a unique emotion. It tells all the effort and passion of these months, but it also tells that in Italy great works can be done and can be done in a short time ».

Salini, accompanied by Webuild’s general manager, Massimo Ferrari, and Nicola Meistro, CEO of Pergenova (the consortium made up of Webuild and Fincantieri), in fact crossed the entire 1,067-meter long bridge on foot, stopping to talk to workers , technicians and engineers engaged in the last stages of the works.

The concrete slab on the bridge, completed over two weeks, has now been completed, while photovoltaic panels are installed which will ensure the energy independence of the bridge.
