Abstract: 
Bridges and prefabricated beams in concrete pre-stressed by pre-tensioning or made of reinforced concrete are a classical solution for bridging spans of between 6 and 35 m. For short span structures, the custom design solution is not suitable. The cost of the design is disproportionate to the amount of work. The Express bridge deck and light duty bridge are pre-developed structures that offer the designer a means of bypassing the "customized" solution. Progress made in France with ultra high performance fibre reinforced concretes (UHPFRC) allows this material to be used economically in the manufacture of industrialised products. The Express bridge deck and light duty bridge are manufactured from optimised UHPFRC elements, allowing companies to install bridges quickly and easily and guaranteeing maximum durability for customers.
