The winning scheme, drawn up with German engineers Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner, will be the ‘world’s longest single-tower, asymmetric cable-stayed bridge’.
It uses just one 175m-tall concrete mast to support the 920m road, rail and pedestrian steel deck.
The £165 million bridge will connect the island’s Tamsui and Bali districts and reduce congestion on the existing Guandu Bridge further upstream.
