The new cable-stayed bridge at Komárom has been designed in 2013-14 (detailed design for tendering), in cooperation with the slovakian Dopravoprojekt design office. The superstructure is a 5 span continuous stiffening girder suspended with two planes of cables on the pylon. The stiffening girder has an open cross section consisting of two sidal main beams and an orthotropic steel deck. The pylon is asymmetric in transversal direction. The steel structure of the pylon is filled with concrete in the bottom part. The bridge deck is straight in plan, and curved (R=15000 m) vertically.
