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.

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.
