Spanning two cliffs on the top of Tanxi Mountain, this curved girder bridge is supported by a single-side cable arch system. Due to the harsh and narrow construction space on the top of the mountain, an innovative construction method was required.
This curved, steel girder deck supported by a cable stayed inclined arch, created a landmark for the area.
The bridge is flanked by dramatic mountainous terrain that challenged the team to design for complex topography in a remote site with narrow construction space.
Considerable attention to feasible and efficient construction lead to an innovative two-stage rotation of girder and arch construction sequence.
Efficiency in form was also considered by load balancing arch and deck, allowing for a single sided cable solution.
The completed bridge is a sophisticated resolution of complex structural engineering considerations, realised in an elegant form.
