Trans-Tokyo Bay Highway
Abstract:Trans-Tokyo Bay Highway, a 15 km road link between Kawasaki City on the Tokyo side and Kisarazu on the other side of Tokyo Bay, consists of two tunnels, two manmade islands and a bridge. Bold engineering solutions have been applied on a large scale in the design and construction of the TTB Highway. The TTB Highway thus forms a gateway to the capital region, and aesthetic considerations were given careful attention in its design. This paper focuses on the design of two of the main structures of the TTB Highway, the bridge and the ventilation towers on the manmade Kawasaki Island.

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.
