Description

The Ting Kau Bridge in Hong Kong is one of the few multi-span cable-stayed bridges ever built, and with 1177 m (3862 ft.) of cable-supported deck, it is one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world.

The arrangement of separate decks on both sides of the three towers contributes to the slender appearance of the bridge while acting favourably under wind and typhoon conditions. Each deck carries three lanes and a hard shoulder.
