Malaysia: the award-winning Sungai Prai bridge

25 July 2007

The Sungai Prai Bridge on the west coast of Malaysia has received two prestigious awards: the Award for Transportation Structures and the Supreme Award for Engineering Excellence 2006.


In Malaysia, LafargeHolcim supplied the 24,000 tons of Mascrete cement used to pour the 1,350 pre-cast concrete segments. These segments now form a 1.85 kilometer bridge which features an impressive 185 meter cable-stayed main span.
