The bronze statue of Anghel Saligny was made in 1957 by the sculptor Oscar Han. It is 3 meters high and represents Anghel Saligny at rest, standing.

Anghel Saligny was a remarkable construction engineer, world forerunner of the science of metal and reinforced concrete constructions, creator of multiple inventions and unique solutions in the design and construction of bridges and industrial constructions, for the foundation of harbor quays and docks, as well as silos wheat through the use of precast concrete, all in a world premiere.

Saligny's imprint on Romania's modernization was profound. In Constanța, Brăila, Galati and Giurgiu, on Prahova Valley, on the railway line that crosses Moldova from south to north, at the Romanian Academy, at the School of Bridges and Roads and especially at the crossing over the Danube in Dobrogea, "the great work, the work the splendid, the admirable work... the work of national pride", as Ţiţeica said in 1925.
