ICYMI: Construction has begun on the Danjiang Bridge in Taiwan, the world’s longest single-mast, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge.
Spanning the mouth of the Tamsui River that flows through Taipei, the 920m Danjiang Bridge is integral to the infrastructure upgrading program of northern Taiwan, reducing through-traffic local roads and alleviating congestion on the existing Guandu Bridge 5km upriver.
The Tamsui River estuary is an important natural ecosystem flanked by the urban centres of Tamsui to the East and Bali to the west. The estuary is rapidly growing in popularity with both residents and tourists as a recreational area where people gather each day to watch the sun setting over the Taiwan Strait.
Designed and engineered to be as slender as possible to minimise its visual impact, the bridge’s 200-metre mast supports the main 450-metre span with dedicated road, cycle and pedestrian lanes.
Positioned to optimise structural performance as well as views of the setting sun from popular viewing points along the riverbank, the mast’s location also avoids impeding the navigability of the river. This single-mast design also reduces disruption to the riverbed in accordance with the enhanced protection programs of the estuary’s ecosystem as a nature reserve.
The new bridge will reduce the journey between Bali and Tamsui on either side of the river by 15 km, saving 25 minutes of travelling time for those crossing the river. The bridge’s design also accommodates future expansion of the Danhai Light Rail network across the Tamsui River.
With a construction schedule of 68 months, the Danjiang Bridge is scheduled to open in 2024.
