The naturalness with which the new bridge blends into its surroundings, leaving the historic bridge its well-deserved place, belies the challenges involved in its realisation and the commitment of all those involved.

The newly created footpath from the Reichenau-Tamins station towards Ruinaulta leads spectacularly through the abutments and allows the viewer to experience the steel construction techniques of two centuries at the highest level from the lower chord of the 1898 truss girder. A visit is worthwhile!
