Visit of the IABSE Swiss Group to the canton of Ticino
This year, the Swiss Group met in the canton of Ticino, the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. They visited a bridge recently built for AlpTransit, south of the Gotthard Base Tunnel and two rail viaducts between Lugano and Bellinzona, with total spans of 1000 m and 400 m and V-shaped piers.
The group also visited the Calancasca valley where they discovered a church, an arch bridge by professor Christian Menn and the Tibetan footbridge “Carasc” which has 270-m span.
These visits were a fantastic opportunity to exchange and discuss with the project developers of these unique structures, which is one of the goals of IABSE.
