Seri Wawasan Bridge, Putrajaya, Malaysia

The main tower of Seri Wawasan Bridge, one of the signature bridges of Putrajaya, Malaysia. The very modern design of the bridge draws its inspiration from a sailboat. It comprises a single span of 240m long supported by stay cables anchored at the other end to a forward leaning concrete pylon. A combination of cable backstays and structural steel tie backs in two planes provides equilibrium to the structure. The concrete bridge is designed to carry dual three-lane carriageways, cycle track and pedestrian walkways. This bridge opened in 16 April 2003
