The bridge carries a total construction budget of approximately $250 million USD. Design bridge has single-tower and will be world’s longest built cable-stayed bridge.
Upon completion, access between Tamsui and Bali will no longer involve detouring via Guandu Bridge–a resulting reduction of 15 km in travel distance (Saving about 25 minutes traveling time)–while making the northern seashore highway system more comprehensive.
An appealing design and economic benefits will be key issue to integrate with Tamsui sunset and make Danjiang Bridge a proud new landmark in Taiwan against the backdrop of Tamsui’s famous sunset.
The goal is to ensure the project can be completed on schedule and per specifications and to make Danjiang Bridge a new landmark that brings northern Taiwan on a par with world-class ports around the world. Source by djcomp.
