BBV Systems

Sava Bridge, Belgrade

In the city of Belgrade, the New Sava bridge was the first new bridge in 30 years, built as a connection between the city center and New Belgrade. The cable-stayed bridge crosses the Sava River with 929 m in length and has a significant roadway width of 45 m. It is the new landmark of the city of Belgrade.

For the backspan and sidespan areas, the bridge superstructure was constructed from prestressed concrete, and in the mainspan it was constructed from steel. In the building contractor consortium, Porr Technobau und Umwelt AG is responsible for backspans and pylons and commissioned BBV Systems for the prestressing work on the superstructure as well as the pre-stressing and tensioning of four temporary auxiliary supports.

The superstructure is made as a three-cell box girder using the incremental launching method and is both longitudinally and transversely pre-stressed. It is equipped with ten tracks, six of them for vehicles, two for subways and two for pedestrians and cyclists.
