Notes
  • "WiHa-dukt," a play on the word "Viaduct," is constructed from "Wilkau-Haßlau - damit uns keiner trennt."
  • Eckhard Bernstorff describes the bridge: "Horizontal curved deck, monotower beside deck; Cable connection to anchors at first view looks similar to some self anchored bridges." Though, also notes the bridge is gravity-anchored.
