Taiwan Bridges

Zaha Hadid-designed Danjiang Bridge in Taiwan scheduled for 2024 opening

After winning the competition back in 2015, Zaha Hadid Architects was appointed to design the Danjiang Bridge in Taiwan. Today, ZHA announced the start of construction on the 920-meter structure, which will reportedly be the world's longest single-mast, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge, ZHA says. As of right now, the $405.2 million bridge will be constructed in 68 months and open in 2024.

10 injured, 6 still trapped at bridge collapse site in Yilan
Excerpt



Taipei, Oct. 1 (CNA) At least 10 people have been injured, including six severely wounded, and six others remain trapped after a bridge in Yilan County collapsed Tuesday, according to the latest data released by the National Fire Agency (NFA).

The Coast Guard Administration (CGA) has deployed a team to the scene of the bridge collapse in the port town of Nanfang'ao to rescue the individuals still trapped under the fallen structure.

When the landmark arch bridge hovering above the entry to the port suddenly ruptured and fell to the ground at around 9:30 a.m., it squashed three fishing boats, and an oil tanker truck just about to exit the bridge at the time fell to the ground and caught fire.

The fire was extinguished shortly after, and the driver was rescued.

According to NFA data, all of those injured are foreign nationals except for the Taiwanese driver of the oil tanker.

The injured foreigners -- six from the Philippines and three from Indonesia -- were workers on the fishing boats caught in the accident.

Taiwan belatedly bolsters bridge maintenance after fatal collapse
5 October 2019

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan’s central government is considering subsidies for bridge maintenance across the island after the tragic collapse of Nanfang’ao Bridge on Tuesday (Oct. 1), which killed six migrant workers.

There are 123 bridges listed as “in critical condition,” said the Executive Yuan on Friday (Oct. 3), based on a nationwide inspection. Remedial measures are being planned by the authorities to ensure the safety of these structures, reported CNA.

Cabinet Spokeswoman Kolas Yotaka said around 23 percent of the island’s bridges have not been properly maintained due to a lack of funds. Subsidies will be implemented to reinforce the 123 bridges that require “urgent” care, she added.

Taiwan is said to have a pre-warning system for bridges that show structural flaws, according to Liberty Times. Developed in 2013, a fiber monitoring system developed by the National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering is supposed to be capable of detecting the slightest sign of subsidence or other irregularities.

The domestically-developed system has been implemented for bridges in Taipei, Yilan, and Taichung, as well as National Freeway 1. The techniques involved have been widely used at domestic companies and even exported to countries like Singapore and Malaysia, according to the report.

Rebuilding collapsed Taiwan bridge estimated to cost NT$520 million
8 October 2019
Excerpt

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Rebuilding Nanfang’ao Bridge in Nanfang’ao, Yilan County, which collapsed killing six foreign workers, will cost NT$520 million (US$16.8 million), the Ministry of Transportation said Tuesday (Oct. 8).

The accident caused the death of three Filipino and three Indonesian fishermen on ships under the bridge Oct. 1, while at least 10 people were reported injured. Reports since then have claimed inspections of Nanfang’ao Bridge and many other bridges across the country have been rare or superficial.

Transportation Vice Minister Huang Yu-lin (黃玉霖) said Tuesday that a plan to rebuild the bridge would be presented in 10 days’ time. Since not just the bridge itself, but the access roads on both sides would have to be first razed and then rebuilt as well, the whole project might cost NT$520 million.
