This historic railway bridge, located at Urcuit in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region, enables the Toulouse-Bayonne line to cross the Ardanavy river. It is currently being restored.
This intervention is part of a global policy to restore old metal engineering structures, and is justified by the general condition of the structure.
Built around 1865, the current Pont-Rail consists of a steel deck with a lattice girder structure. As part of this project, the bridge will be replaced by a composite deck. The existing abutments will be upgraded and reinforced with micropiles and tie rods.
