Taizhou Bridge wins engineering award

20 November 2013
Taizhou Bridge over the Yangtze River in Jiangsu province has won the Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence at an annual event in London organised by The Institution of Structural Engineers.

The world’s longest double span suspension bridge was designed by Jiangsu Provincial Communications Planning and Design Institute alongside AECOM, the US technical and management support services group. It is the world’s first long-span, three-tower suspension bridge, with two main spans of 1,080 metres.

In awarding the prize, the judges said: “This enormous project was an extraordinary achievement, which pushed the frontiers of suspension bridge technology to new heights. Bridge engineering has just moved forward by a very significant margin.”
