Hohhot’s first cable-stayed bridge nears completion
The first cable-stayed bridge in Hohhot, capital city of North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region, is nearing completion -- with its single tower capped on Oct 31, according to people.com.cn.
The bridge, part of the Jinsheng Expressway Project, is expected to greatly alleviate traffic congestion between the urban area and the Dahei River, as well as between Horinger New Area and the Dahei River.
Officials said it will significantly shorten the travel time in the urban area of Hohhot to Horinger New Area.
After several rounds of studies, it was decided that the bridge would have a single tower and would be double cable-stayed.
Officials said it is an arched structure with four columns and no auxiliary piers. The total length of the bridge is 270 meters and the bridge’s width is 29 meters.
Officials said it has a two-way six-lane urban expressway, with a top road of 80 km/h.
