This paper illustrates the final design development and the construction engineering of a cable-stayed bridge of recent construction, which crosses the commercial harbour of Venice.
The bridge presents a curved deck, steel-concrete composite structure, single layer of stay cables displayed on a conical layout, and a slanted single lateral mast.
The construction method was based on the erection of the deck structure by floating and lifting of large macro-elements. The girder system was designed according to the concept of deck structure protected by a stainless steel enclosure.
