Elbebridge Schönebeck, Germany


Cable-stayed bridge with a composite main span of 185 m and an A-shaped pylon with a height of 73 m. 25 span prestressed concrete approach bridges, total length 1128 m.

The new bridge at Schönebeck is the largest cable-stayed bridge in the region, constructed to relieve the City of Schönebeck from a considerable increase of through traffic.

The judges were impressed by the elegant simplicity of the bridge, which has been thoughtfully detailed to fit perfectly into the surrounding landscape while creating a landmark structure.
