Stonecutters designer scoops Shanghai prize

THE CONSORTIUM that picked up the $250,000 prize for first stage design of Hong Kong's Stonecutters Bridge has done it again on an even longer bridge in Shanghai.

Halcrow/Flint & Neill, working in conjunction with Danish architect Dissing + Weitling and the Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute, will share a $300,000 prize for the design of the Shanghai-Chongming Crossing.

With a 1,200m main span and 325m high pylons, the cable stay crossing will be the longest in the world when complete. The winning solution also includes a second 600m span cable stay crossing and 11km of approach viaducts.

As during the Stonecutters procurement process, the winning team has no guarantee that it will be awarded the more lucrative detail design and site supervision commission. Earlier this year Arup snapped up the second stage Stonecutters commission, but Halcrow bridges director Andrew Yeoward said that he believed the team, led by SMEDI, was 'in a much stronger position'.
