The design concerns the definition of the works necessary to restore the Lambrate junction and to complete the structures partially constructed for connection with the Intermodal Center in Segrate.
The design of the new junction on the Eastern By-Pass Road of Milan has been influenced by several constraints posed by the urban conurbation that can be found in the area. As a consequence, a system of indirect ramps has been adopted, which fully exploits the several passages offered by the presence of the Viadotto dei Parchi on the Eastern By-Pass Road, and successfully solves any conflicts among the directions served by the junction. In two cases (ramp Segrate–Bologna and ramp Milan–Venice), in order to reduce the space requirement of the junction and allow radii of curvature compatible with the applicable provisions, a part of the ramps had to be covered by an artificial tunnel.
As to completion of the roads to the Intermodal Center, the pre-existing constructions dating back to the period 1991-1994 for connection to the I.C. in Segrate served as a guideline that significantly influenced the design, especially with regard to the implementation of the technical rules concerning the characteristics of roads and safety barriers.
