Abstract: This article presents the Bras de la Plaine Bridge on the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean (France). The bridge structure is a single 280-m long span embedded in counterweight abutments. The deck is a composite truss structure comprising two concrete slabs linked by two planes of steel diagonals. Only the upper slab is continuous at the key. This bridge constitutes a step forward for composite structures.
