Ting Kau Bridge, Hong Kong
Abstract:The Ting Kau Bridge in Hong Kong is one of the few multi-span cable-stayed bridges ever built and, with 1,177 m of cable-supported deck, it is one of the longest cables stayed bridges in the world. The bridge is one of a multitude of infrastructure projects for the new Chep Lak Kok airport, located on Lantau Island some 30 km from Hong Kong island. The Ting Kau Bridge and approach viaducts will link the western New Territories and the mainland to an expressway called Lantau Fixed Crossing, which connects the new Airport with Kowloon and Hong Kong.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
