On July 7, our reporter learned from the construction site of the East Tower across the Hun River bridge that the bridge has now completed the system transformation. The support frame under the deck has been dismantled and the cable system and bridge pier have fully loaded the weight of the bridge.With the completion of the operation, the East Tower Bridge is not far from completion.

In the East Tower Bridge construction site, our reporter saw that the main cable of the bridge tower has been traced, the bottom end of the cable is connected to the ground, and the highest place is connected to the steel tower column of 45 meters above the bridge surface.It is understood that the East Tower Bridge is a self-anchored suspension bridge with five span continuous steel truss bridge tower, the span of the bridge is40 meters, 90 meters, 220 meters, 90 meters, 40 meters respectively, and the maximum span is 220 meters. It also makes the East Tower Bridge the largest single span suspension bridge in Shenyang.This means that there is not a pier in the length of 220 meters, and all the weight of the bridge is borne by the suspension cable on the bridge.

The single main cable of the East Tower Bridge is made up of 19 strands. The single strand is made up of 127 high strength galvanized steel wires with a diameter of 5 millimeters, and there are 2413 steel wires.After the completion of the bridge, the maximum load capacity of a single main cable is about 2580 tons, which is equivalent to 10 empty A380 airliners.If two main cables are counted, there will be 4826 steel wires, and the internal force will double.

With the completion the east tower bridge deck system transformation, the bridge will install a spire on the main bridge tower, echoing with the tower tip of the East Tower in the shape.Count up the spire of the tower, the height of the East Tower Bridge will reach 50 meters.By the end of August, the East Tower Bridge will be open to traffic. It will become a beautiful landscape on the Hunhe River in Shenyang.

For the convenience of the citizens to enter the Hunhe River Beach Park, the upper and lower stairway of pedestrians entering the park were set up on both sides of the Hun River.After the East Tower Bridge opens to traffic, the vehicles running across the bridge from the South to the North can go directly to the two directions through the ramp to the East and the West.
