List of longest cable-stayed bridge spans

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list ranks the world's cable-stayed bridges by the length of main span, i.e., the distance between the suspension towers. The length of the main span is the most common way to rank cable-stayed bridges. If one bridge has a longer span than another, it does not mean that the bridge is the longer from shore to shore, or from anchorage to anchorage. However, the size of the main span does often correlate with the height of the towers, and the engineering complexity involved in designing and constructing the bridge.

Cable-stayed bridges with more than three spans are generally more complex, and bridges of this type generally represent a more notable engineering achievement, even where their spans are shorter.

Cable-stayed bridges have the second-longest spans, after suspension bridges, of bridge types. They are practical for spans up to around 1 kilometre (0.6 mi). The Russky Bridge in Vladivostok, Russia, with its 1,104 metres (3,622 ft) span has the largest span of any cable-stayed bridge, displacing the former record holder, the Sutong Bridge over the Yangtze River in the People's Republic of China 1,088 metres (3,570 ft) on 12 April 2012.[1]

Completed cable-stayed bridges[edit]

This list of largest cable-stayed bridges includes all bridges with a main span of at least 500 metres (1,600 ft) in length. This list only includes bridges that carry vehicular traffic, as in automobiles or trains. It does not include suspension bridges, footbridges or pipeline bridges.

Gordie Howe International Bridge proposed Detroit, United States to Windsor, Canada The bridge will be either a suspension bridge or a cable-stayed bridge.[41]

Longest cable-stayed bridge decks[edit]

The definition of cable-stayed bridge deck length that here has been selected is: A continuous part of the bridge deck that is supported only by stay-cables and pylons, or are free spans. This means that columns supporting the side span as for example found in Pont de Normandie, excludes most of the side span decks from the cable-stayed deck length.

Note that there are some bridges with long bridge decks whose all span lengths have not been published, and therefore are missing. Extradosed bridges are not included. The thirty longest decks are:

Timeline[edit]

Many early suspension bridges were cable-stayed construction, including the 1817 footbridge Dryburgh Abbey Bridge, James Dredge's patented Victoria Bridge, Bath (1836), and the later Albert Bridge, London (1872), and Brooklyn Bridge (1883). Their designers found that the combination of technologies created a stiffer bridge. Albert Caquot's 1952 concrete-decked cable-stayed bridge over the Donzère-Mondragon canal at Pierrelatte is one of the first of the modern type, but had little influence on later development.[51] The steel-decked Strömsund Bridge designed by Franz Dischinger (1956) is therefore more often cited as the first modern cable-stayed bridge.[52]

This list tracks the bridge having the longest cable-stayed main span through time.

This list may be incomplete and detailed sources for pre-modern cable-stayed bridges may not be available, so the timeline might not be accurate.
