The Shezi Bridge construction project, Phase one, Contract one (mileage 1K+265~1K+700 spanning over the Keelung River) – new addition

I. Project origin
With Shezi Island situated at where Taipei City’s Keelung River and Tamsui River converge in the downstream, in a low-lying area that has long been marred by extended flooding, and in light of which, the “Taipei Flood Prevention Project” that begun in 1970 has enlisted the area as the “restricted development area” in support of the flood prevention needs. Under extended development restriction, the limited infrastructure development, such as roadways and so forth, has delayed the locale’s development, leaving the area’s environment in disarray.

As buoyed by the Taipei City Government, Department of Urban Development’s “detailed planning project for Shezi Island, Shilin Taipei City”, and the successive evolvements of revamping the riverbank flooding prevention scheme into a embankment building plan, it is highly anticipated that the pace of the urban development will bring a niche opportunity to the Shezi Island area, and also harbor a waterfront leisure and tourist industry amid its riverbank geographical environment.

By examining Shezi Island’s surrounding environment, its present external transportation only extends to Yenping North Road and Zhoumei Expressway, and of which, Section 7 to Section 9 of Yenping North Road remains narrow and winding; the Zhoumei Expressway bans the access of motorcycles, rendering neither to be the ideal roadway. With the Taipei City Government actively sought to promote the Shezi Island area’s development plan in recent years, step one of the plan has been to improve Shezi Island’s external transportation, hence the birth of the Shezi Bridge project. The project is the overall project’s phase-one, bid one project.

II. Project introduction
(I) The project starts from the crossroads of Chengde and Lixian Roads on the east, moving west to cross over the Keelung River to the east of Shezi Island, where the bridge spans over 435m, and by bridge structure, it is divided into three components of B101, B102 and B103; of which, B101 and B103 are of the general steel box girder structures, and B 102 the main section spanning over the Keelung River adopts the inclining cable-stayed bridge structure.
(II) The main bridge adopts an asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge with an angled tower, which pertains to an asymmetrical span layout, with the short span at 70m and the long span at 180. The lower structure adopts concrete piers, and the tower, bridge underside girders, tie beams and main birders adopt steel box girders, making it a cable-stayed bridge with separated tower and piers.
(III) The project began on May 6, 2009, and was completed on August 20, 2012.

III. Project team
(I) The spearheading agency: The Taipei City Government, Public Works Department, New Construction Office.
(II) Design entity: CECI Engineering Consultants, Inc, Taiwan
(III) Construction supervision entity: CECI Engineering Consultants, Inc. Taiwan
(IV) Construction contractor: Chun Yuan Construction Company, Limited

IV. Project yields
(I) A preliminary project to the Shezi Island development plan, which is to offer a construction shortcut at project implementation.
(II) A multipurpose/objective landscape bridge as a connecting roadway for mass transportation, cars and motorcycle, and bicycles.
(III) On the bridge there is landscape recreational lookout offering pedestrians to take in the panoramic view and foster recreational activity.
(IV) The bridge, featuring an elegant style and combining innovative bridge technology and design approach, helps to create a brand-new landmark and showcase the environment characteristics.
(V) Bridge surface facility
