Description

The project relates to the realization of a new road connection between SS 240 – Mori Ovest and the Rovereto Sud A22 Brennero motorway exit.
The new motorway link road, with 2 lanes in each direction has a total length of 7 km and crosses a very fragile alpine landscape that is greatly characterized by its network of streams and rivers. The road layout foresees various structures, among which two natural tunnels, a bending viaduct with three spans overlying the A22 motorway and a 7-span viaduct over the Adige River.

The design alternative was drafted in order to rationalize the whole project both technically and economically, with the intention to optimize the landscape integration (green areas, environmental monitoring systems, sound barriers) using the best technological solutions available on the market to comply with new regulations (road works, road surfacing, tunnel control and monitoring systems). Systems for monitoring the flows of traffic in real-time were also inserted.
