Abstract: The Ponte dei Congressi is a new bridge designed for the city of Rome over the River Tiber. This design is developed by the professional association of engineers and architects who won the international design competition held for this bridge in 2001. 15 years later this project is becoming a reality, with construction due to start in 2016. The design has been adapted and renewed according to the new conditions of the road and traffic design planned in the area. The new design is a steel bowstring arch bridge with 175 m main span, which holds a 24,5 m wide deck, and two side footbridges that are suspended from the deck at a different level, in order to a link the footpaths and bicycle lanes at both river banks. It forms part of a large road connection operation improving South West access to the city of Rome from Fiumicino Airport.
