Realization of 2 concrete metal bridges

Haiti: bridge of Riviere des Bas and bridge of Anse at Foleur

Matière® was commissioned for the realization of 2 concrete-metal bridges. The first is on the Rivière des Bas, the second in the town of Anse à Foleur. These structures are located in the north of the island of Haiti, near the city of Saint Louis du Nord on the national road No. 15. Unibridge® technology was chosen for these two bridges.

The most important, the Rivière des Bas Bridge, has a reach of 168 m and a width of 9.70 m. It consists of 3 central spans of 34.20 m each and two end spans of 28.90 m each. Each span consists of 3 rows of beams 1.25 m high. It is the most important work built by Matière® in Haiti.

This work is completed by a second mixed bridge, the Anse à Foleur bridge. With a total length of 57.80 m, it is made of 2 spans of 28.90 m wide of 9.70 m.

Both structures were entirely made in our Bagnac-sur-Célé factory. In spite of extremely difficult climatic conditions because the island is regularly ravaged by cyclones and a the social situation is sometimes degraded, Matière® has delivered and assembled these structures which will make it possible to accelerate the economic development of this part of the island.
