Bridge “Garibaldi” Island La MaddalenaReferences_3746
The new Bridge “Garibaldi” that connects the Island La Maddalena and Island Caprera (Province of Olbia) has been achieved in the work planned for the extraordinary meeting of the G8 in July 2009 based on original Italian presidency, then held in L'Aquila. The project involves the removal of the bridge temporary Bailey-type and the creation of a new road and pedestrian bridge linking the Island of La Maddalena with Island of Caprera. The longitudinal profile of the new deck is curved circular shape. The shell geometry characterizes the circular structural pattern of the bridge, so that curved surfaces with a minimum thickness and of variable width, depending on aesthetic requirements, generate a significant spatial variability of the structure. This structural design has been determined in accordance with both functional and aesthetic impact constraints, given also the high quality environment and landscape of the site. The bridge is developed above the sea along a straight axis with central span 52 m, with a maximum height of about 5.6 m above the water level. The cross section of the bridge is 10 m wide, the space to vehicular traffic is 6 m. On the sides there are two protected pedestrian and cycle paths each of a width 1.8 m. For the extraordinary time demands given by the construction company the bridge was completed in just 4 months of work.

Vennes-Chexbres-TP2 - N9 UPlaNSReferences_117
Opened in 1974, the section Vennes-Chexbres of the N09 Swiss motorway is now subject to major maintenance, renewal and improvement works. To overcome the difficulties caused by traffic overload between the Vennes and Belmont junctions, it is planned to transform the existent emergency lane into a lane suitable for transit at peak hours (temporary PUN). Lombardi Ltd., leader of the joint venture LIG-A, is charged with the project management and most of the tunnel and geotechnical studies for the section TP2 (km 7'610 to 11'800). This section, located in a highly urbanized area, includes major bridges Chandelar (L ≈ 245 m) and Paudèze (L ≈ 410 m), the Belmont tunnels (L ≈ 400 m), the Vennes junction, 4 overpasses and 3 underpasses. All the works will be performed under traffic of 65’000 vehicles / day with 4 busy lanes during peak hours. To do this, major civil works including the Belmont tunnels enlargement and the strengthening and enlargement of the two major bridges of the section are necessary. The Belmont tunnels will be enlarged using a rigid portal structure which ensures protection and a separation area between traffic and civil works. The portal, installed all along the tunnel, accommodates two reduced size lanes (2 x 3.50 m) for regular traffic during the enlargement of the vault's tunnel. This construction method, proposed and adapted for the Belmont tunnel, presents a pioneer in Switzerland and is a significant technical challenge. It is also a great opportunity for various Swiss tunnels that have to be rehabilitated and expanded under traffic in future.

Extension Northern Bypass Zurich, Lot 1 (covering Weiningen)References_5869
The general project envisages a semi-interchange in Weiningen, in the vicinity of residential areas, as well as a 100 m long covering of the western portal area of the existing 1st and 2nd and the new 3rd tube of the Gubrist tunnel. The national road N01 will be enlarged at the project perimeter due to the additional roadway for the new 3rd tube of the Gubrist tunnel. In the future, 3 lanes will lead towards the Limmattal junction in the new 3rd tube, while 2 lanes will lead towards St. Gallen / Airport in each of the existing 1st and 2nd tube. The new semi-interchange Weiningen, compared to the existing one, has been moved by 200 m towards the Limmattal junction and is characterized by an exit at the level of the national road N01 as well as a geometrically rescaled entrance compared to the detailed design of 2009. The two existing overpasses “Einfahrtsrampe” and “Klosterweg” will be demolished and reconstructed in a new location. The bypass will be adjusted in the horizontal alignment over a length of about 400 m. The country lanes will be adjusted to the impacts of the project.

Main inspections of the tunnels Amsteg – GöschenenReferences_1555
On behalf of the Federal Road Office FEDRO, Zofingen branch, in the period 2014-2024 Lombardi carries out the quinquennial main inspections of the tunnels Intschi I, Intschi II, Platti, Langlaui, Ried and Teiftal between Amsteg and Göschenen in the canton of Uri on the north ramp of the Gotthard road tunnel. The two-tube road tunnels have 2 lanes each and some of them include auxiliary structures. The tunnels have varying lengths from a minimum of 80 meters up to 555 meters. Due to the age of the structures and the various repairs, all the tunnels have different characteristics and damages. The tunnel inspection aims to capture the actual state of the tunnel via a visual inspection of the structure, to document it accordingly and then to evaluate it. The key component of the main inspection is the visual inspection of all structural elements, which accompany a description of the structure. The documentation in the report includes the description, analysis and assessment of the current condition of the structure, the preparation of a forecast and a recommendation for action.

Southwest bypass SinsReferences_4668
The South-West-Bypass Sins in the south of Canton Aargau should relieve the heavily polluted city centre and its access roads from the high level of traffic (more than 25’000 vehicles per day). Along the local transit road, the limit values of the noise protection regulation are exceeded. Likewise, the pollution levels are close to and sometimes exceeding the maximum emission values. From North to South, the general project South-West-Bypass Sins comprises the roundabout North, (diameter approx. 40 m), the almost 70 m long Bachtal bridge, the connecting 912 m long cut-and cover tunnel including ventilation center and several escape routes, the 40 m long Schürmatt bicycle- and pedestrian overpass as well as the roundabout South (diameter approx. 40 m). The adjustment and upgrading of the Aargauer Road K 124, which should be handed over from the Canton Aargau to the Municipality of Sins in good condition, represents another component of the project of the South-West-Bypass Sins. Lombardi manages the general planning team which realizes not only the construction works, but also the entire operational and safety facilities, the ventilation, the noise protection, the design and landscape architecture as well as the traffic technology. From today’s perspective, the start of construction works will be in spring 2018. The construction works, including the finishing of the tunnel and all the auxiliary structures, will be completed in about four and a half years. The total costs amount to 88.4 million CHF.
