SIRTEF and its wire ropes in the new Manerbio Exit

With an amount of more than 21 million euros, Centro Padane completed last September the work for two new motorway exit stations, one in Manerbio and the other in the South Area of Brescia, with the purpose, in both cases, to increase services available for travellers in transit.

Manerbio Exit project, which also involved SIRTEF in the work, was completely rebuilt in 10 months with a cost of € 2 million approximately, and despite the complexity the toll-station has always remained open during construction allowing access to the near hospital.
