At ArcelorMittal Europe, we offer a full range of products, solutions, and services for footbridge designers and contractors:
- High strength steels - used to design and erect light structures that are more resistant, more economical, and have a reduced environmental impact.
- Enhanced weldable steels - in order to ensure robustness and long-life durability, whatever the local conditions may be.
- Weathering steels - requiring less maintenance along the complete life cycle and giving structures a very innovative appearance.
- Sheet piles and reinforcement bars - for foundations and piles.
- Prefabricated solutions, including curved girders - delivered on site to reduce erection time and avoid traffic disruption.
All of the above capabilities have been recognised and valued by our customers, and we are proud to have contributed to some of the most recently erected landmark footbridges in Europe.

JRC report: Choice of steel material for bridge bearings to avoid brittle fracture
The EN Eurocodes are a set of European standards which provide common rules for the design of construction works to check their strength and stability against live and extreme loads such as earthquakes and fire.With the publication of all of the 58 Eurocodes parts in 2007, the implementation of the Eurocodes is extending to all European countries and there are firm steps towards their adoption internationally. The Commission Recommendation of 11 December 2003 stresses the importance of training in the use of the Eurocodes, especially in engineering schools and as part of continuous professional development courses for engineers and technicians, noting that they should be promoted both at national and international levels.In light of the recommendation, DG JRC is collaborating with DG ENTR and CEN/TC250 'Structural Eurocodes' and is publishing the report series ‘Support to the implementation, harmonisation, and further development of the Eurocodes’ as JRC scientific and technical reports. Editorial work for this report series is assured by the JRC together with partners and stakeholders when appropriate. The publication of the reports type 3, 4, and 5 is made after approval for publication from the CEN/TC250 Co-ordination Group.Technical article
Throughout its wide range of products, ArcelorMittal provides an extensive set of solutions that meet footbridge performance and aesthetics requirements.
Footbridges are a symbol of soft transportation mode development in urban areas.
Like any other bridge, footbridges must be long enough to cross the obstacle below and high enough not to interfere with whatever passes beneath the bridge.
However, it is an increasingly common requirement for footbridges to be ‘landmark structures’. Therefore, the appearance of the structure is met with more attention than usual.
In most footbridge cases, a fairly light structure is required as the loads they carry are quite modest. This may result in some very innovative and unique forms of construction.
