Ponte Ostiense Rome
History and description
The Ostiense bridge has a length of 160 meters and consists of three lanes of traffic in each direction, flanked by bicycle paths. The bridge is characterized by a steel arch, towering above the railway- and metro tracks it crosses.
Construction of the Ponte Ostiense, which connects the Via Ostiense to the Circonvallazione Ostiense, was meant to start in 2009, but archaeological finds caused significant delays. In the end building the bridge took two years, from 2010 until 2012.
