Preparing for the 2015 INTERNATIONAL EXPO exhibition, Milan is changing its architectural landscape.
Milan administration decided to create new futuristic buildings in the central Milan area and Fagioli was contracted for the transport of two walkway bridge sections which will be positioned in this area, lately.
The walkway bridge sections weight 124 tons each, transported for 210 kmt from North- Eastern Italy zone to Milan Center. The transport of the first section was completed in two nights by means of two 11 axle lines modular trailers and two prime movers.
Dimensions of the convoy were the following:
Length: 63 mts
Width: 5,95 mts
Height: 4 mts
During the transport the long convoy required three “reverse” operations with the consequent closing of some roads. In Milan, close to the installation area, eight overbridge structure were positioned, in order to overcome some difficult passages due to the ground capacity restrictions.
