About the Pont de Provence

Located opposite the Aigues-Mortes railway station, this bridge, built in 1940, could no longer support heavy vehicles. From 2021, a 3.5 tonne limit was introduced with the installation of barriers at both entrances to the bridge.

It was necessary to rehabilitate it, and a complete renovation was chosen with a complete demolition and reconstruction.

From 3 January 2022, the bridge was closed to traffic.

Progress on the new bridge - 29 April 2022
