Appreciation towards Dietmar Feichtinger Architects for providing the following description:

由Dietmar Feichtinger事务所在塞纳河上建造的人行天桥为Mantes-la-Jolie和Limay之间提供了一种软性的连接,邀请人们踏上一条名副其实城市长廊。

桥梁位于定义Vexin南部界限的河流之上,地处河流的弯曲地带,为城市空间与自然景观的交汇创造了一个微妙的舞台。在凌驾于山谷的高地的树荫下,在圣母教堂的宏伟身姿与北岸的旧城街道之间,这条新的路径横跨塞纳河的两条支流,仅在Ile aux Dames绿植密布的坡地上方稍作停留。

Dietmar Feichtinger’s new soft mobility bridge over the Seine linking Mantes-la-Jolie and Limay is an invitation to embark on a veritable urban promenade. In the crook of one of the loops of the river that define the southern limit of the French Vexin, he has created a subtle staging for urban space and the natural landscape to meet. In the wooded shade of the hills that dominate the valley, between the high silhouette of the collegiate church of Notre-Dame and the streets of the ancient city on the north bank, the new pathway crosses two arms of the river, pausing only to rest on the wooded slope of the Ile aux Dames.

A double footbridge for a soft link


For this first crossing, which is now completed and runs alongside the road bridge, Dietmar Feichtinger chose to place the new structure at a distance from the existing bridge deck. When you stand on the bank, the footbridge looks as if it is flying over the river: fine steel curves undulate between the two banks in a three-dimensional motion, continually changing shape, rising and almost imperceptibly separating the pedestrian path from that of the two-wheelers, which is positioned closer to the car bridge. Whether crossing on foot or by bike, one almost immediately forgets the noise of the traffic.

A difference in level is established between the decking of the two routes to form a bench seat. In the middle of the crossing, where the footbridge rises well above the roadway, the levels meet and the passage widens to offer passers-by a view over the river where they can linger to admire the beautiful landscape.

A ribbon of steel and wood linking the two river banks


The all-steel structure is supported by the bridge abutments on either side of the river. A central caisson with a variable trapezoidal profile forms the main framework, like a spinal column to which a series of T-shaped brackets are fixed 3 meters apart from one another. The watertight box girder is composed of welded metal sheets whose torsional strength enables the asymmetrical forces generated by the profile of the bridge to be transferred to the supports. In the middle of the river, the two concrete pillars of the Pont Neuf serve to carry the intermediate supports. Thus, the new structure does not encroach on the riverbed.
