Notes
  • Eckhard Bernstorff notes: "Side spans (not suspended) have separated girders. Cables are anchored at connection point of these separated girders to the ground (at the end of side span girders). Suspended main span girder is free of horizontal forces. Hangers are 'plates' with cross-section 1 x 4 cm."
