Groundbreaking ceremony for the “Pont Neuf” bridge in Aarau. Works should last about 15 months.

The structure of an old chain bridge in Aarau has suffered from decades of applied load. The new bridge is blending harmonically into the historic town setting and at the same time creates an attractive layout by the waterside. The formal principle of the bridge recalls the continuity of the historic fabric: plinths of houses, city walls, breast walls and ramps. The building links the city’s traffic network with the varying topography. The existing piers are absorbed within the three arches, while two new piers are added along both riverbanks.
