Viadukt in Bugnei

Description

The original viaduct was built - with interruptions - in the years 1913 -1925 and put into operation in 1926 by the Furka-Oberalp railway. It is 120 m long and spans the Val Bugnei with nine arches. The masonry is 3.13 m wide and a maximum of 24.20 m high. From 2000 to 2001 it was carefully restored. With cement injections, the monolytic masonry could be strengthened. The new mortar joints correspond to the original ones. The entire railway system had to be replaced. In addition, a pedestrian walkway was attached.

Tip for amateur photographers: Wait until a Glacier Express train crosses the bridge. There are also beautiful pictures when the viaduct is illuminated with changing colors in winter.
