In Strasbourg, the consortium led by Bouygues Travaux Publics is constructing a design-build Bridge over the Rhine. Its form and dimensions make this an impressive cross-border project. It will be a double-decker bowstring arch bridge and will measure 290 metres long and 16 metres wide. Entirely dedicated to environmentally-friendly modes of transport, this new bridge over the Rhine will relieve traffic congestion over this frequently used Franco-German route and will connect the centre of Strasbourg to the Kehl train station in Germany by tramway starting in 2018.
