General data of the bridge
According to the given conditions and the accepted concept of precast According
superstructures the bridge is designed as a cable-stayed beam, with cable
two spans 14.0+56.0=70.0 m
The superstructure of the bridge consist of: prestressed concrete deck The
with 3+2x3 stay cables and one pylon placed on the left river flood plan. Finished road level is set low in the bridge zone; to respect the conditions Finished
of free opening above the flood flow, the designed solution has small constant height of the deck: 77.0 cm between the finished road level to the bottom surface of the structure.
The bridge is of constant height along the whole span

Beside the functionality, strict vibration’s and stability conditions, the Beside
aesthetic appeal of the bridge was important design constraint. Finished road level is straight and inclined longitudinally towards the Finished
left river bank (i=1.37%)

The center line of the bridge is straight, while the center line of the The
river flow in the bridge zone has curvature of 400.0 m in radius, and intersects the center line of the bridge almost perpendicularly. The deck width is 4.2 m, with both side lateral inclination of 2.0 % The

Free profile is 2x2.0/2.5 m along the whole span - passing beside the Free
