Incheon bridge half way through construction


Korean contractor Samsung is almost half way through construction of the £800M toll-financed Incheon bridge, which will provide Seoul with a second motorway link to its international airport. The 18.2km crossing comprises a 1.48km cable stay section, two 889m balanced cantilever approach viaducts, a 5.95km western approach bridge and a 2.45km eastern approach.

Amec is project manager for the crossing which is being constructed in the sea with an array of floating cranes, barges and concrete batching plants. It is also a 23% shareholder in Koda, the company set up to promote the project. One of the main challenges has been dealing with a 9.5m tidal range and working around the shipping lane serving Korea's second largest port. Arup Halcrow Dasan jv is independent design checker for Samsung.
