This end market segment is no doubt one of the purest examples of Steel, the Fabric of Life.
Civil engineering is essential for the well being of each and everyone of us and as such, is the “backbone” of our society. It ensures links between people. And without the use of steel in this segment, there would be no transport of people, goods, drinking water or energy, and we would not be able to explore the land.
Not only does steel ensure safety on roads and railways, it also protects us in case of natural disasters like flooding and earthquakes. Moreover, steel successfully combines sustainability and beauty, by ensuring long-lasting, high-tech works designed to last centuries and demonstrate mankind’s skills & knowledge.
Road equipments are addressing safety on the road networks, and increasingly allows for sustainability and comfort, be it for safety barriers, acoustic walls, culverts, or lighting.
From 1 single metre to a 2000 metre span, steel is and remains the preferred material for bridge designers, who mainly use high strength steels.
