New bridges set Guinness world records

The Rong (Dragon) and Tran Thi Ly bridges over the Han River were officially inaugurated in Da Nang today, 29 March, to mark the 38th anniversary of the liberation of the city.  In addition to the existing Han River swing bridge and the Thuan Phuoc suspension bridge, Da Nang is taking great pride in its two newly constructed bridges - the first of their kind in Viet Nam.  They are expected to become new symbols of the city thanks to their aesthetics and unique architectural characteristics.  Da Nang is now home to the largest collection of unique bridges in the country.

The Rong and Tran Thi Ly bridges are both likely to earn entries in the Guinness Book of World Records as, respectively, "the largest steel dragon of its kind in the world" and "the biggest bridge bearing pads in the world".  Furthermore, many parts of these bridges are being entered for Guinness world records for their scale and construction techniques.

Connecting the city's international airport and Nguyen Van Linh Street across to Vo Van Kiet Street and the seaside tourist areas, the Rong Bridge is expected to aid opening up the full tourism potential of the city.  The Civil Engineering Construction Corporation No 1 (Cienco 1) is the constructor, and its staff and workers have made great efforts to complete the bridge on schedule after working very hard and ceaselessly for around 1,000 days.  Designed by the Louis Berger Group from the USA, the bridge features the shape of a dragon flying over the Han River, and it is unique in Viet Nam.  The 166m long and 1,100 tonne steel main arch is the largest single span in Viet Nam, and its 6 traffic lanes make it the widest.  The dragon's body measures 540m in length and 2,000 tonnes in weight, with its head weighing 90 tonnes and its tail 40.

Along with the Rong Bridge, the Tran Thi Ly Bridge has also become a new tourist attraction and symbol of Da Nang, with its aesthetic, unique and creative characteristics.  It has been built to replace the downgraded Nguyen Van Troi Bridge and the old Tran Thi Ly Bridge.

Designed by the renowned WSP Finland Company, the new Tran Thi Ly Bridge has a 145m tower which, with its suspension cables, forms an upside-down capital "Y" intended to looking like sails facing towards the East Sea.

Like the Rong Bridge, the new Tran Thi Ly Bridge has also set some world records.  It has the largest bridge bearing pads in the world, weighing 3.2 tonnes and bearing a capacity of 32,000 tonnes, which breaks the 17,800 tonnes record of a Chinese bridge.  It also has the largest suspended single section in Southeast Asia (34.5m long).  This is the first suspension bridge in Viet Nam to successfully apply advanced construction technology and, thanks to this, the construction time was just about halved.

The two newly constructed bridges are emerging as key attractions in the city for both domestic and foreign visitors.  They are expected to bring more tourists to the seaside city thanks to their beauty, especially at night.
