December 29, 2013 by  

Langwieser Viaduct, Switzerland, The Langwieser Viaduct (or Langwies Viaduct; German: Langwieser Viadukt) is a single track reinforced concrete railway bridge spanning the Plessur River and the Sapünerbach, near Langwies, in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland.

Designed by Hermann Schürch, it was built between 1912 and 1914 by Eduard Züblin for the Chur-Arosa railway, and is now owned and used by the Rhaetian Railway.

It is also now listed as a Swiss heritage site of national significance as it is a pioneering reinforced concrete structure.

The viaduct is located on the Rhaetian Railway’s metre gauge line from Chur to the holiday and recreation resort of Arosa (the Chur-Arosa line). It carries the railway line over the Plessur River valley, immediately up the line from Langwies station.
