this is a kind good of construction method of the bridge.
deck, longitudinal beam and transversal beam have been poured with concrete using form traveller as its casting. Meanwhile cable stayed will not be stressed till all concrete has gained certain fc'. And form the picture above, usually cantilever structure of the bridge, most critical condition at concrete as less matterial to refrain tension. To solve this problem, engineers have made prestressed in contrete.

It will be the Capital’s first hanging bridge

NEW DELHI: With the 2010 Commonwealth Games bringing big money to Delhi, the state government has ambitious plans lined up. Along with fly overs, roads and parks is a signature bridge on river Yamuna at Wazirabad to be constructed about 600 metres from the existing bridge.

A German-based company has designed Delhi’s first hanging bridge. Suspended by strong cables, the eight-lane bridge will be 550 metres long and 40 metres wide. It will also have cycle tracks and foot paths on both sides. The bridge is expected to be complete by July 2009.

“The bridge will be a landmark structure and an architectural masterpiece,” said Delhi Tourism minister Arvinder Singh Lovely.

Initially, the plan proposed to erect towers on either side of the bridge looking into the river. The Delhi Tourism Development Corporation (DTDC) had also planned to have bubble lifts to take visitors to the top for a panoramic view of Delhi.

However, the plan ran into trouble when the Delhi Urban Arts Committee (DUAC) made objections. “There is a debate on the towers and we hope to get that cleared too,” said Jose Kurien, chief engineer of DTDC.

“In order to keep the area buzzing with activity we have also planned an amphitheatre at the shore, food courts, theme park and night illumination of the bridge,” said Kurien. The tourism department is seeking expert help from Mumbai’s water sports centre developers for scuba diving and walk-in aquariums.
I don't know if this is the same project?
