The Taizhou Yangtze River Bridge links the cities of Taizhou, Zhenjiang, and Changzhou across Asia’s longest river. At the point where the bridge is located, the river has a width of approximately 2.1 km.
In order to minimize impacts on river flow and navigation, a three-pylon (two main span) suspension bridge with spans of 390 m, 1,080 m, 1,080 m and 390 m was proposed.
The ambitious construction project represented the first attempt to create a long-span multi-tower suspension bridge, and the bridge won the 2013 Institution of Structural Engineers Supreme Award for structural engineering.
mageba supplied TENSA-MODULAR LR expansion joints for both ends of the bridge, with 18 individual gaps, facilitating movements of up to 1,440 mm.
The TENSA-MODULAR expansion joints were connected to the bridge structure by shear bolts. The installation team adopted butt welding during installation under the supervision of mageba.
The entire steel surface is coated with anti-skid material, ensuring high safety when driving in humid environments.
