Dublin Link Pedestrian Bridge – Independent Peer Review

© sbp/Michael Cox

The Dublin Link crosses the Scotio River in Downtown Dublin and is the longest span, single tower S-shaped suspension bridge in the world. Its steel superstructure passes through the “eye” of a cast-in-place concrete mast without any vertical support. The bridge is supported by an elaborate cable system including one tie-down cable, two main suspension cables, two restrainer cables and 38 hanger cables. schlaich bergermann partner was commissioned to provide an independent peer review, a constructability review, and erection engineering for the installation of the cable structure and erection sequencing.
Our work included a review of the construction documents and special specifications; independent construction analysis and proposal for a modified construction sequence; independent verification of cable and post-tensioning forces; pre-review of specifications to identify any complications; and verification of anchorage details during erection. sbp also served as Engineer of Record for the bridge erection sequence.
