Work begins on Adolphe bridge makeover
Work has begun to renovate Pont Adolphe, a major bridge crossing the capital's Pétrusse valley which will be closed until the end of 2016.
The stone structure, referred to by Luxembourgers as the “Nei Bréck”, or new bridge, is actually 110 years old.
It was closed to traffic in mid-April when the temporary blue bridge was inaugurated alongside it.
This week contractors Soludec Lux-TP began work to dismantle the old structure, using a special crane.
In the coming weeks, scaffolding will be installed around the bridge for the next phases of dismantling.
