Donaustadtbrücke Bridge in Vienna

Gerald Foller

Abstract

Several bridges had to be built across the Danube River in Vienna to enable construction of the Freudenau Hydropower Plant. The Donaustadtbrücke Bridge had to be built so that the traffic can be maintained during erection of the Praterbrücke Bridge (A23). The cable-stayed bridge was designed in such a way that it can be put to different uses during its design life. First it was used as a two-lane road bridge, but is being converted since 2006 to accommodate the metro traffic. Once the quantity of cables is doubled, the bridge will be able to withstand higher loads.
