Reinforcement of the Draluk Bridge, Erbil, Iraq

[Responsible for Consolidation and Restoration Design]


The Draluk Bridge is a Byzantine monument in northern Iraq. The remains of the ancient bridge represent a stone viaduct with large spans of 15 meters. In 2012, due to the construction of a power plant and a storage dam near the historic bridge, the protection of the monument became necessary for the Heritage trust of Kurdistan Region. 

The project was designed and executed in collaboration with a Boland Payeh company.

The distinguishing feature of this project was the presence of Italian supervisors for the monitoring of the historic bridge during the whole process of the dam construction & and the close cooperation between the parties in repairing and strengthening the building.
