Restoration of the roman bridge Vella

The bridge was severely affected by the extension designed by civil engineer Geoffrey A. Helmets in 1893. How hilly your profile, clearly medieval, driveway and masonry parapets Hopscotch and lime, were eliminated, forcing up to the new level road with a ramp on the left abutment (facing the city).

The works include the clearing of sidewalks and guard rails, the demolition of existing asphalt pavement of the roadway of the bridge and its approaches closer. The image of the bridge will be recoverred as well as the widening and hilly profile, to meet the needs of topographical, structural stability of arches 6 and 7.

The foundation detected damages are repaired and cleaned the walls of the bridge. It gives a new road hopscotch pavement, and are built with masonry parapets also Hopscotch slate topped by a coping of granite stones in the area. The work is finished with the road lighting luminaires hosted on the railing, and the walls of the arches on both sides of the bridge for a better night ornament.
