The New Gerald Desmond cable stayed bridge will replace, with a main span of 410 m and a clearance of over 60 m, the existing steel arch truss. Scope of work comprised in a first instance the preparation of an expert witness report on the design of the composite bridge deck, featuring a post tensioned lightweight concrete slab. In a second phase E.D.In. carried out an independent check of the erection stages, with an “over the shoulder review” carried out at the offices of the designer ARUP in New York.
