The installation of the new cycle-pedestrian bridge in Tavernelle di Colli al Metauro was completed on Thursday the 30th of November 2023, causing the closure of a part of Via Flaminia for just a few hours. The structure, in COR-TEN steel, takes the place of the old wooden bridge (about 30 meters long and 2 meters wide), at km 267+300 of the Consolare road, impassable since the beginning of summer 2021 due to serious deterioration of the materials, then removed in June this year. After about two and a half years, the people of Tavernelle, in the municipality of Colli al Metauro, will once again have a cycle-pedestrian passage over the Rio Barzotto, alongside the Flaminia road. The Mayor declares that “the choice of COR-TEN steel is based on its durability over time and on the fact that it blends very well with the landscape context”. Then the mayor adds: “This is an important connection work between the old town of Tavernelle and the new one, which restores safety, especially for pedestrians.”
The Biagiotti company took care of the carpentry. The new infrastructure, in COR-TEN steel, arrived on site in one piece, making the installation extremely smooth. The launching operations, which involved 6 workers and 2 crane trucks, were completed in a few hours.
