Our steel builds bridges
At ArcelorMittal, we are proud to contribute to bridge construction as we are able to satisfy the highly demanding technical and service requirements set by designers and contractors.
Among our innovative range of products and solutions, some are particularly bridge-oriented and are ideal for short to very long span projects:
- High strength steels - used to design and erect lighter structures, which are more resistant, more economical, and involve a reduced environmental impact.
- Enhanced weldable steels - very high toughness levels in order to ensure robustness and long-life durability, whatever the local conditions may be.
- Weathering steels - require less maintenance throughout the complete life cycle.
- Sheet piles and reinforcement bars for foundations and piles.
- Prefabricated solutions - delivered on site for short and medium spans.

Award-winning InQuik system uses Magnelis® to install innovative bridges quickly14 January 2020
Australian company InQuik has developed a unique method of building bridges which can be implemented quickly using only low-skilled labour. The globally patented technology utilises Magnelis® from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products to create the formwork of a bridge, which is then filled with concrete to create the bridge deck. Although the bridges are designed for a service life of 100 years, experts believe that the use of Magnelis® could double that without the need for significant maintenance. With hundreds of thousands of bridges needing replacement around the world, the potential for the InQuik system is enormous. The innovative design of the InQuik system was recognised when it won the 2019 T.C. Graham Prize from the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST).Product News
With its wide range of products, ArcelorMittal provides an extensive set of bridge solutions that meet your project performance requirements. Our sales and technical teams are at your disposal in order to continue contributing to the creation of new links between people.
For more than 3000 years, bridges were not perceived to be typical construction works. They have always been a symbol of mankind's skills and knowledge, and they represent the creation of links between people. Therefore, it is no wonder that bridges all around the world are recognised as “landmark constructions” and are visited by thousands of people each year.
