£300m Danjiang Bridge set to open in 2024

Zaha Hadid Architects has announced the start of construction work on the practice’s Danjiang Bridge in Taiwan, which it said would be the world’s longest single-mast asymmetric cable-stayed bridge.

The US$405.2 project – equivalent to £307m at today’s exchange rates – will provide a new crossing at the mouth of the Tamsui River, which flows through the capital Taipei, reducing congestion on other routes.

ZHA has been on the project since 2015 and is working with joint-venture partners Sinotech Engineering Consultants, Leonhardt and Andrä.
