Cable-stayed bridge in Lagos, Nigeria
- Traffic infrastructure planning
- Structural design of the bridge
- Architectural design
The bridge is a key road link between two extremely busy districts in Lagos.
The structure is a landmark of the financial hub and the very first cable-stayed bridge in West Africa.
Its design and engineering involved cutting-edge construction methods. The approach bridge was constructed with large deck panels and the main bridge with match-casting segments.
The geometric complexity of the structure, combined with mainly precast elements, represented a real challenge to the design engineers and required considerable attention to detail.
In the design process, special emphasis also had to be placed on the foundation, which was executed on large bored piles, due to the sensitivity to settlement.
