The viaduct “Lange Wapper” located in Antwerp (Belgium) is a cable stayed bridge which spans a very dense harbour site. This curved cable stayed bridge comprises a main span of 603 m and two balancing spans of 300 m. The curved alignment of the work, with a mean radius of 1000 m, is such that the two 150 m high concrete pylons consist each of a single mast each, implanted inside the curve. These pylons are also inclined by 9° on the vertical to minimize the vertical axis bending moments in the deck. The steel deck with orthotropic and composite slabs, is a box-girder, with two levels including each 4 traffic lanes. The web of the box consists of a double V-mesh. This work probably represents the largest curved cable-stayed span studied in the world today and its realisation is suspended to politics decision.
