Transport and Infrastructure Minister Danilo Toninelli said that the new viaduct that will replace the Morandi bridge in Genoa will be opened early in 2020.

The Morandi bridge over the Polcevera river collapsed in August in a disaster than claimed 43 lives.

On Tuesday it was announced that contract to build the new bridge has been won by Salini Impregilo, together with Fincantieri and Italferr.

“We’ll see it up on its feet at the end of next year and we’ll inaugurate it at the start of 2020,” Toninelli said.

The 202-million-euro project for the new bridge was inspired by world renowned Genoese architect and life Senator Renzo Piano, 81: “It’s my gift to the city”.
