Designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti and engineer Romain Ricciotti to handle this high level of traffic, the Pont du Diable footbridge is an innovative construction thanks to LafargeHolcim's Ductal® ultra-high performance concrete:
- the footbridge spans more than 70m reaching a static height of 1.80m, without any intermediary support, arches or stays,
- it comprises 15 prefabricated concrete sections, without any steels,
- the fluidity and superior mechanical performance of Ductal® meant the bridge deck needed to be just 4cm thick, a technical performance never before seen for a construction of this size!
Ductal®'s discretion, performance and lightness also allow the Pont du Diable footbridge to blend seamlessly into this typical southern French landscape.
