The Basarab Flyover Bypass is the longest cable-stayed bridge in Romania, one of the widest cable-stayed bridges in Europe and the longest bypass in Bucharest – so, it is no surprise that it features BBR technology and know-how!

 

A number of factors serve to make this a complex project – for instance, it must bear loads from both road and rail traffic, it has an irregular, unsymmetrical plan shape with entry/exit ramps and is located in a seismic zone. The innovative BBR Network solution provides load transfer for the stay cable anchorages with CONA CMI post-tensioning and employs the HiAm CONA system for the stays themselves.


The Basarab Viaduct is set to become Romania’s benchmark for infrastructure construction, now that the benefits of innovative post-tensioning and cable-staying techniques, developed by the BBR Network, have been fully explored and recognized.
