Twenty-four entries from seven countries were received. Our entry won first place. Part of an urban expressway, it accommodates six traffic lanes and a pedestrian-bicycle access across the bridge. The design solution was to construct a single pylon, 100 meters high, and hang the roadway from suspension cables from this tower.
The longest span is 240 meters with shorter spans as the cables the approach the pylon. The main span would qualify as one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world.
