The Bridge consists of 95 m long spans with a total length of 850 m. The bridge’s substructure rests on Ø1300mm bored piles where barges were used for Axis in water. The bridge’s superstructure consists of a continuous box girder section. Balanced cantilever erection of precast segments was used for the long spans as access beneath the deck was difficult.

Due to the required number of segments a pre-casting yard dedicated only to this project was installed. The casting yard spanned over an area of 95,000 m2. Match casting technique was used to ensure severe geometry control.
