The New Ashton Arch Bridge was completed in the town of Ashton, South Africa, crossing the Cogmanskloof river. The bridge replaces an existing solid spandrel, a multi-arch bridge which had reached the end of its functional service life. The new tied-arch bridge comprises a cable-supported concrete deck which spans 110 metres between bearings and arching ribs which rise 22 metres above the asphalt road surface. The superstructure, which was completed mid 2020 adjacent to the existing road-alignment was then transversely jacked to its final position after completion of the substructure. This presentation highlights important design and construction aspects that are of interest to the civil engineering profession.
