Unique footbridge with Webnet

The new suspension bridge near our headquarters in Trubschachen is almost finished. It is highly innovative, using Webnet instead of cables as hangers. This lends the bridge a very elegant look.

We would like to thank all sponsors and partners, the community of Trubschachen, Thuner Bau AG and Kambly SA
