The Nelson Mandela Bridges (French: Ponts Nelson-Mandela) are two twin bridges in France, along the River Seine, between Ivry-sur-Seine and Charenton-le-Pont, where the Seine and the River Marne have their confluence. Initially they were both called the "pont de Conflans" ("Confluence Bridge"), but were renamed for Nelson Mandela, the first democratically elected President of South Africa. They now form part of the D103 and the A4 autoroute.
