Construction of a 2.285 km long elevated highway is underway in the historic city of Bandung in West Java, Indonesia. An lndonesian/Kuwaiti joint venture company Wika-Waskita-CGC has been appointed as contractor to construct this challenging structure over the streets of Bandung during the next two years. Bandung is recognised as one of the main academic and technological centres in the country with its universities and its aerospace industry representing a focal point for the city. The elevated highway will be the first of its type in Bandung, and as such, the structure encompasses modern design and construction techniques to provide a viaduct and a 'landmark' cable stayed bridge crossing appropriate for the city's prominence. High priority was given to this project by the government in order to develop the country's technological capabilities and it thus represents an important step in the realisation of its huge potential. Throughout the design stages an emphasis on transfer of technology was therefore a key feature during the development of the final solution. This paper describes the key features of the design and the proposed erection techniques adopted for the construction of the viaduct and the cable stayed bridge.
