Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
The girder for the cable-stayed bridge is a composite truss in steel and concrete. The concrete top deck carries a dual two-lane mototway with emergency lanes. The lower deck carries a two-track railway.The approach bridges with 140 metre spans have a two-level composite superstructure with a steel truss incorporating an upper concrete roadway deck and lower steel cross beams with a concrete railway containment.
The concrete pylons are 203.5 metres high and founded on limestone. Prefabricated caissons are placed at a water depth of approximately 15 metres, and the pylon shafts are cast in place.Artificial islands were established around the pylons and nearby piers to protect against ship impact.All caissons, piers and pier shafts were prefabricated on-shore and assembled off-shore.
The contract was a design-and-construct contract, which means that the contractor was responsible for both the basic and the detailed design and construction.
The Skanska-led consortium Sundlink Contractors HB entrusted the basic and detailed design and endorsement of the construction work to the CV Joint Venture COWI and VBB of Sweden with COWI as lead partner.
The bridge was opened for traffic in July 2000.
