The Confluences bridge in the city of Angers, France

A bridge designed for sustainable mobility

Winner of a 2010 Urban Development award in the Mobility category, this concrete and metal bridge spanning the River Maine is entirely dedicated to alternative and greener modes of transport: the tram, of course, but also cycling and walking.

Project overview

Built between 2006 and 2011, this arch bridge with intermediate deck spans the River Maine in a single 290 metre stride. A particular feature of the bridge is the suspension of its 161 metre long main section from a central arc with radiating suspenders.

With three separate lanes (for tram, cyclists and pedestrians), crossing is reserved for Anger's first tram line and other “green” modes of transport. Only emergency service vehicles are allowed to cross when necessary.
