Why is the work taking so long?
The work is progressing a lot quicker than it seems.
We have to guarantee the safety of both motorists and site workers and this calls for the utmost attention and seamless coordination between a large number of trades.
Take the first viaduct of the bridge over the Tagliamento river, for instance: it is one and a half kilometres long, it sits on 19 pylons each with 8 piles cast into the ground at a depth of 75 metres. It only took 379 days to build it and it was all done on-site, setting up a worksite within the worksite.
