This bridge form has a beautiful appearance and easily fits in with the surrounding environment due to the fact that various structural systems can be created by changing the tower shapes and cable arrangements. Cable-stayed bridges are structures that require a high degree of technology for both design and construction, and hence demand sophisticated structural analysis and design techniques when compared with other types of conventional bridges.

  • Extraction activities disturb the land surface through clearing of vegetation, removal of topsoil, excavation of ore and overburden and the construction of over- burden dumps or solar evaporation ponds. Removal and stockpiling of topsoil for subsequent rehabilitation is carried out at many mining opera- tions. In a number of cases, topsoil is removed and placed directly on landscaped reclaimed areas. This avoids the cost of re-transporting topsoil from stock- piles and the possible reduction of biodiversity.
