Four Historical Steel Bridges Over the Mures River

On the Mures River there are some representative historical steel bridges built at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. They are located in important emplacements being an emblematical symbol for the local community. One of these structures – the bridge in Savârsin - was successfully rehabilitated, being an example of a difficult strengthening work. In addition, the bridge in Arad, a monumental cantilever structure - a witness of the past, was renewed. The two other bridges, in Lipova and Savârsin, are in a bad technical condition. All these structure are riveted. A duty of the present administration is to preserve these structures as historical and technical monuments. The paper describes the present situation of the structures.
