Construction engineering of Phu My cable-stayed bridge, Vietnam

The Phu My Bridge will span the Saigon River between Districts 7 and 2 in Ho Chi Minh City. The bridge will form part of a new ring road currently under construction around Ho Chi Minh City. The ring road will be an important transport link from the southern Mekong delta region to the central and northern parts of Vietnam. The Phu My Bridge contract includes the design and construction of a 705m long cable stayed main bridge with a clear span of 380m, as well as the approach structures on either side being approximately 758m on District 7 and 638m on District 2. The main span deck will be 27m wide. Clearance to river traffic is provided with 45m vertical clearance in a 250m wide zone. The pylons carrying the deck are designed as an H frame and are approximately 140m high. The main bridge deck is designed as an insitu reinforced and partly post tensioned concrete slab supported on longitudinal and transverse beams and suspended from the pylons by the stay cables. This paper describes the bridge, the method used to construct and the construction engineering used for the stage by stage analysis of the bridge and the on site.
