Passengers on the Rhaetian Railway taking photos of the spectacular scenery as the train crosses this 65m high, 142m long viaduct, are in for a surprise: instead of the curved arches of the railway bridge they will see a work of art - wrapped up Christo-style.
The bridge is being refurbished - for the first time since it was built over 100 years ago, and without changing the outward appearance of this UNESCO World Heritage structure. In just 7 weeks, the Swiss company Lawil Gerüst AG erected 750t of Layher scaffolding with a covered surface area of 6,000m².
The red Christo-style wrapping, which used 350 rolls of protective netting 50m long, made the scaffolding into a work of art.
Thank you to Josef Tresch, Managing Director of Lawil Gerüst AG, for the use of this photo.
