The Phu My Bridge spans the Saigon River between Districts 7 and 2 of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). The bridge forms part of a new ring road currently under construction around HCMC. The ring road will be an important transport link from the southern Mekong Delta region to the central and northern parts of Vietnam.

The Phu My Bridge contract includes the design and construction of a 705 m long cable-stayed main bridge with a clear span of 380 m, as well as the approach structures on either side being approximately 758 m on District 7 and 638 m on District 2.

The main span deck is 27 m wide. Clearance to river traffic is provided with a 45 m vertical clearance in a 250 m wide zone. The pylons carrying the deck are designed as an H frame and are approximately 140 m high.

The bridge was constructed by a joint venture between two companies and was completed in September 2009. This paper describes the construction engineering used during the stage by stage analysis of the bridge and the onsite role to control the cable forces and bridge geometry during construction of the bridge.

    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.
