Feasibility studies for bridges

Fixed links have significant impacts on society, and designers are faced with the complicated task of optimising benefits and minimising adverse consequences.

Study results

A feasibility study of a fixed link will typically result in a selection of:

  • alignment
  • structural concepts
  • procurement strategy.

Thus, the main challenges of the study are to:

  • establish a well-founded basis for decisions which takes into account integrated technical, environmental, societal, economical and financial aspects
  • manage the decision process through a systematic and stringent approach with due attention to inherent uncertainties.
