Linearity and neatness of design, in the service of functionality, are the design features that emerge from the new pedestrian boardwalk linking the two stations of Lugano.

Technical Description

The systematic influx of pedestrians coming from the FLP railway station can now take advantage of a direct link to the FFS railway station avoiding the winding route of the several road pavements.

The design had to take account of all existing restrictions to laying the construction: heavy traffic road, inviolability of the surrounding vegetation, the presence of a working building site, street lights etc.. The Vismara SA company provided for the installation during the night (preceded by the closure of the road agreed with the Police of Lugano), thanks to the use of two 100 tons cranes parked on the roadway. The quoins were taken from the station square and placed in opposite rotation in the final place.
