Valenciennes Bowstring

Valenciennes Bowstring

The Valenciennes Bowstring is a 2-kilometer bridge construction project that will connect the Saint-Saulve roundabout with the Bruay-sur-l’Escaut roundabout (North). It features a 76-metre-long bowstring bridge, a double-girder engineering structure, a pedestrian footbridge, and a wildlife passage.

Dextra supplied a tension rod system as a hanger for the bowstring arch bridge on the bypass, in collaboration with its local partner Freyssinet, to assure the structure’s stability.

The tension rod system is not only trusted for its high performance, but it also comes with different parameters such as design load, surface finish, and corrosion resistance, to fit all project technical and aesthetic requirements.
