Services Provided:

Full responsibility for all design, analysis and detailing of 13 highway over river bridges.

The Libyan Roads Authority (The General People’s Committee for Communication and Transportation, the Authority for Roads and Bridges) commissioned the design and tender documentation for 375km of new Dual 3 lane highway along the northern coast of Libya, together with all ancillary works and structures. As a sub-consultant, Exstrado was commissioned for the design of 13 river crossings along the proposed highway. The bridges varied in length from 25m to 175m, and ranged in height from 5m to 23m. The superstructures comprised standardised continuous 25m spans of pretensioned U8-beams acting compositely with an in-situ concrete roadway slab. The Substructures comprised reinforced concrete crossheads and piers supported on Ø950mm oscillator piles, with Reinforced Earth retaining structures at the abutments. All of the bridges were designed as fully integral in nature, and are thereby virtually maintenance free.
