Incheon Bridge project - gateway to new international business hub

The cable-stayed Incheon Bridge in South Korea will create a new link between the new Incheon International Airport on the island of Youngjong and Songdo and the new International Free Enterprise Zone. The crossing will be formed from a low-level viaduct, an approach bridge and a cable-stayed bridge. The cable-stayed bridge will have a main span of 800m. The bridge was designed to the requirements of both Korean Code and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials load-and-resistance factor design. Ship impact prevention was identified as an essential part of the design. Details are given of the substructure design (piles, pile caps), superstructure design for the viaduct and balanced cantilever approach spans, construction programme, temperature control and batching plant for the concrete pours for the pile caps, and the full-span launching method.
