Genoa's New Bridge towards Completion of Project: Start of Load Tests with 56 Trucks, 2,500 Tonnes

Load tests have begun on Genoa’s new bridge following the near completion of the structure in a record 13 months by Webuild and Fincantieri. The tests, conducted by state motorways entity Anas and Rina, began with 16 lorries driving along the bridge during what is called phase zero of a preliminary assessment.

The static load tests began, with 56 lorries weighing 44 tonnes each putting the bridge through further tests with a total combined weight of 2,500 tonnes. The static load tests will continue for the coming days. Although they will keep having trucks run along the bridge, the eastern ramp will have remote-controlled vehicles on it.

Meanwhile, Webuild is completing its work to preparing the bridge for delivery: installing glass and solar panels, setting up signage and preparing the final layer of asphalt four centimetres thick.
