     Swiss Army engineer units intervened in the town of Bumbach to help the population after heavy storms. Up to 60 soldiers built a “Mabey” bridge mesuring 39.62metres spanning the Emme river. The Mabey Bridge has thirteen bays, weighs 39 tons with a width of 4.2 metres. Two pedestrian bridges 26 m long were also built in nearby Eggiwil.

     Since the 14th of May 2014 the Swiss Army has a new support bridge. It was designed to replace the old system “Fixed bridge 69″ now obsolete. Sixteen hardware deck modules and twenty-four vehicle laying modules were acquired for 259 million Swiss francs ($ 287 million).
