WSP wins Vietnam cable stayed bridge

WSP last week won the contract to design a 700m long cable-stayed concrete bridge in Da Nang, Vietnam.

The winning design of the Nguyen Van Troi-Tran Thi Ly Bridge by the consultant's Finnish office includes an inclined 140m tall tower and illuminated spiral cables. The six lane cable-stayed concrete bridge will include a 230m main span, with a total deck width of 34.5 m.

It will replace the two bridges connecting Da Nang's mainland via the river Han.

The final design for the structure will be confirmed in May. Construction should start by 2009 and be completed in 2011.
