Poya Bridge

The Poya Brdige is the cable-stayed bridge with the highest span in Switzerland and was deliberately designed in contemporary architecture and thought in the great tradition of suspension bridges in the city of Fribourg.

It took 6 years since the first sod, to build the masterful Poya bridge. Indeed, early work began in October 2008 and the first stone was laid in September 2010. The bridge was inaugurated on October 11, 2014.

With the Poyaprojekt a longstanding concerns of the residents of the city of Fribourg and the authorities was taken into account: redirect transit traffic, which brings the arteries of the city to suffocation; public transport, pedestrians and cyclists give precedence; protect the historic heritage of national importance and rid the Bourg district, suffering daily under a traffic volume of approximately 25,000 cars, of this burden. The relentless decline of the city icon, the St. Nicholas Cathedral, leaves no doubt that a permanent solution had to be found quickly.Das Poyaprojekt will undoubtedly make a contribution to the economic development of the whole canton. The aim of the project is, among other things, to guarantee the mobility in the Fribourg agglomeration in the long run and for alleviating downtown. The improvement of public and private transport in the major economic center of the canton has become essential to secure Fribourg a rightful place among the great Swiss centers.
