Pre-qualification competition in Ardon, 2019
Retrofit of the cantonal road
In collaboration with
ARC Génie Civil
RGR Ingénieurs Conseils
Located at the foot of the Chamoson dejection cone, the village of Ardon nestles against the mountain, sheltered from marshy lands. The Simplon road runs alongside the village to avoid unstable lands. It was from 1950 that the village’s development towards the south became concrete. From 1970 to the present day, the southern part of the T9 has developed massively. The building area extends almost to the highway. The T9 now separates the historic village from the new one. Our T9 development project proposes a revaluation of the space freed up by the redesign of the cantonal road. The project invests the space to give the inhabitants quality common living spaces. The developments were carried out with the aim of calming T9 traffic and providing better accessibility and safety for soft mobility. The strengthening of the integration of trees, improves spatiality and contributes to stabilizing the temperature and enhances the existing situation.
