This intervention is part of a vaster urban requalification project promoted in occasion of EXPO 2015 in Milan.
The entire Infrastructure spans some 6 km and consists on the conversion of the existing provincial road SP 46 into an highway (between the "S.S. 35 dei Giovi" junction and the bridge over the Milan-Varese rail line), as well as on the realisation of a new road parallel to the SS 35 between the S.P.46 and the A52 North ring road junctions. The project focuses on providing continuity to both the North Ring Road of Milan and the A4 highway, establishing a direct connection between the A52 and the Rho-Monza, a natural continuation of the highway system in the West.
The project also included new single-carriageway roads, predominantly coplanar with the main road, designed to ensure local connections with the areas crossed by the new infrastructure.
Another important element of the project is represented by a cable-stayed bridge crossing the S.S. 35 Milano-Meda.
In this context, the design focused particular attention not only on functional aspects, but also to the careful insertion of the project within the landscape, guaranteeing the preservation of both urban areas and the surrounding landscape.
