Tatara Bridge - landmark anniversary

30th Anniversary of start of construction

Can it really be three decades since construction of the amazing Tatara Bridge began? This month sees the 30th anniversary of the start of work on this pioneering landmark stay cable bridge in Japan. With its 168 BBR HiAm CONA stay cables, Tatara Bridge features the longest cable-stayed main span constructed in the 20th century. The project incorporated all the learning and technological developments that had gone before, but also set a benchmark for the future too.
