Abstract:

Just recently, in January of 1987, the first S-curved cable-stayed bridge in the world has been completed as a part of Metropolitan Expressway's Katsushika-Edogawa Route in Japan. The bridge has a four span continuous curved girder, two main towers and multiple cables. The total length is 455 meters (40. 5 m plus 134 m plus 220 m plus 60. 5 m) and the towers' heights are 65 m and 29 m respectively. The structural and constructional features are given.
