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.

XCarb® recycled and renewably produced steel selected for bridge reconstruction after flood in Germany1 December 2023
The images of the devastating floods in Belgium and Germany in 2021 are still fresh in our minds. With hundreds of deaths, these floods were one of the worst natural disasters in Europe, in terms of the number of victims, for many years. In Germany, the Ahr Valley was the hardest hit. The flood destroyed much of the infrastructure, including the rail bridge at Bad Münstereifel, which was completely destroyed by the flood and has disrupted rail traffic ever since. Two years on, the reconstruction is almost complete.Project news

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.
