At the beginning of the 1960s, the engineers Edouard Bourquin and Georges Stencek executed two engineering structures for the City of Geneva in the Saint-Victor street. In the middle of the 1970s, they used the same model on two other works in the Charles-Galland street. 

These four bridges enable crossing the Helvétique and Emile-Jaques-Dalcroze boulevards. The span that crosses the Emile-Jaques-Dalcroze boulevard is 25.40 metres, while the one above the Helvétique boulevard is 32.50 metres. These engineering structures are simple articulated frames with variable inertia and prestressed concrete tie rods. 

Since then, our office has repeatedly performed inspections of these engineering structures and carried out various works to adapt them to today's standards.
