Constantine Bridge

DISSING+WEITLING architecture as Architects

The concrete cable-stayed bridge will become a pivotal structure within the historical and hilly context of the city of Constantine. The bridge is designed with Constantine's pride in bridge construction in mind: it will be a beautiful monument from a distance, as well as a fine structure to walk over and drive across.


The 130 m high pylons will be a reference point for people in the area, and the bridge will be visually exciting, day and night. The winding roads leading to the bridge reveal spectacular views from several points along the way. The bridge is relatively wide with 2 lanes and a sidewalk on each side. The pylons are centrally located, separating the carriageways to either side.


The new bridge crosses the ravine above the river Rhummel to connect two important areas of the city, the ONU area and the Mansourah plateau. The bridge is an integral part of a series of infrastructure works intending to resolve the serious congestion problems plaguing Constantine.
