As reinforced concrete was then the most advanced building technology available, the engineer Armand Considere - inventor of a very strong helical reinforcement for concrete - was put in charge of the piling and, notably, for the 44.5m span concrete bridge which he designed on the principle of an inverted suspension cable (p27).
