WATCH: Construction of Italy’s New Genoa San Giorgio Bridge Completed to Replace Collapsed Morandi Bridge

The new bridge, which is colloquially called The "Pergenova Bridge”, is being delivered by Salini Impregilo and has taken just 7 months to construct up to this point thanks to an expedited administrative process. The new bridge has been designed with durability top of mind - a simply-supported beam and pier structure which Piano says has full accessibility for steel maintenance.
