Structural monitoring of the Mont Blanc Tunnel: A model for safety

Extending over a length of 7.2 miles (11.6 km), the Mont Blanc Tunnel is a strategic feat of engineering that offers fast travel between France and Italy. It is a major trade route that supports the local and inter-regional economy. In fact, substantial traffic travels along it daily, contributing to its wear and tear. The tunnel is operated by a Franco-Italian organization, the GEIE-TMB (Mont Blanc Tunnel European Economic Interest Group). The company is responsible for the tunnel’s structural monitoring and maintenance, as well as traffic safety and management.

Preservation of regional heritage: the Stone Bridge in Libourne

Restoration of the right-side abutment of the Stone Bridge in Libourne: How the teams from OSMOS Group succeeded in installing a comprehensive monitoring system in compliance with the architectural requirements of the work.
 

The Stone Bridge in Libourne was built in 1820 to create a road connection between Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion for the transport of wine. The structure is both an icon of the Gironde region and part of its heritage. The red bricks used to construct it were made in the greater Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and attest to the masonry expertise characteristic of the Gironde area.
