DYWIDAG Strand Tendons for flowing Road Traffic: New Viaducts in Brunei, district of Bukit Beruang
In the sultanate of Brunei on Borneo Island, 57 new road construction projects will be built that will provide for more safety in road traffic and ease congestion on the existing roads.
In the district of Bukit Beruang that has considerably grown within the last few years, another new bridge was built at the Persimpangan Lebuhraya Tutong Telisai/Jalan Perumahan Bukit Beruang Junction to relieve traffic. The 4 lane viaduct consists of two spans, each 30m long and 23m wide. The reinforced concrete deck is supported by 13, 30m long PSPC T-girders.
Each of the girders was post-tensioned using two Type 15-0.62" and one Type 19-0.62" DYWIDAG Tendons. In total, the construction of the new flyover in Bukit Beruang required 52 Type 15-0.62" DYWIDAG Strand Tendons and 26 Type 19-0.62" DYWIDAG Strand Tendons with a total strand tonnage of 44t. Utracon also provided the steel formwork for casting the T-beams.
