Commissioning of the new structure

Work on the Redoute Bridge is on schedule, after a year of construction.

The 32-metre span pre-stressed reinforced concrete structure allows the railroad tracks of the Lausanne-Geneva line to be crossed by the Chemin de la Redoute, linking the communes of Nyon and Prangins.

The new structure replaces the old masonry Redoute bridge. It was built by prefabricating the new reinforced concrete girders on the existing bridge, which was used as a construction site. The girders were then placed with cranes in two one-touch operations on new abutments that rest on the back of the existing bridge. The new structure is completely independent of the old arch, which will be demolished later.
