Project Value:Cars Paying Toll without Stopping in Five Provinces and One City
Shanghai Electronic Toll Collection Project is a major civil engineering project. By using this toll system, cars can go through the gate in less than two seconds, five to ten times quicker than paying fees manually. STEC leads the industry in designing smart transport. After Shanghai government issued a paper on developing the highway ETC system in 2006, STEC is proud to be invited to design the 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases of the ETC project, providing comprehensive plans for the full application of the ETC system, and also assisting Shanghai to lead other cities in developing smart transport. We suggest the ETC project having toll charging and clearing center, card center, customer service system, toll charging branches, toll gate system, driveway system and car OBU system. We’ve also proposed an innovative ETC technique plan. That is, installing OBU with a single stored value card to let a car go through quickly on crowded roads to meet some cities’ requirements of high speed. Using traffic micro simulation software PARAMICS can optimize the setting of ETC driveways, railings, and card readers. With all these, crowded roads can be eased and clearance speed can be increased. After the 1st and 2nd phase construction, 190 ETC driveways were set up in 22 major toll gates and 64 subsidiary toll gates in Shanghai. After the 3rd phase, 79 more were installed, covering all the highway toll gates inside Shanghai. Cars can now pass through the Yangtze Delta Region (Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Jiangxi and Fujian) without stopping, by using the ETC system.

Bridge Length:3.6 Kilometers
Jiangxi Nanchang Chaoyang Bridge, between the Nanchang Bridge and the ShengMi Bridge, is the major project of the south-central expressway crossing over the Gan River in the trunk road network plan. Its total length is 3.6 kilometers, including 1,560 meters that cross over Gan River. STEC invested, designed and built the bridge. We also undertook its daily maintenance, materializing “Full Life Circle Theory”. In terms of the design, after full consideration of the history and development of Nanchang, we formulated “Sail in Joint”, which means the bridge would have six towers and seven holes. The shape of the bridge looks like a Chinese character合, meaning tolerance and harmony. In the middle of the bridge, there are two viewing platforms which make it a pleasant experience to cross the river slowly. During the construction, we used the new technology of PC box girder with corrugated steel webs. It not only decreased the work of supporting structure, but also the work of building samples, bracket etc. The new technology was economical, and shortened construction period. Nanchang Chaoyang Bridge advanced the plan “One River with Two Shores” of Nanchang government. It further accelerates the construction of new Chaoyang city, and it is significant to the development of Hongjiaozhou District.

Airspace Class:4E Class Civil Airport
After several years of expansion, Shanghai’s first civil airport, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport is now one of China’s largest international airports. Its construction and operation fully embodies the idea of “developing a city’s airport is to develop an aviation city”. STEC has been involved in the construction of Hongqiao Airport as early as 1970s, including most of the construction work of the runway, taxiway and tarmac before 2005. In terms of the airport’s renovation, STEC has accomplished the task of asphalt paving on runways in 1991, 1998, and 2005, without affecting the airport’s daily operation. We have also renovated the eastern taxiway in 2000, and the eastern runway in 2011. The airport’s eastern runway renovation project not only made full use of its residual value, but also complied with the infrastructure procedure strictly, and ensured safety, high quality and high efficiency of the project during the whole construction process. This was led by the life cycle cost management concept, supported by technological innovation and guided by the airport’s operation.

Road’s Length:20.5 kilometers
Shanghai-Jiading Expressway is the first expressway in China, linking Qilianshan Road in northwestern Shanghai in the South and South Jiading Gate in the north. The total length is 20.5 kilometers. Two interchanges, Nanxiang and Malu, were built along the expressway, which were designed, constructed and maintained by STEC. In terms of its linear design, we introduced perspective inspection method to check the expressway’s route planning and its plane/longitudinal linear displacement. Eventually the design team came up with a road planning solution that matches greatly with the expressway environment that significantly improved the driving experience. The two diamond-shaped interchange along the Shanghai-Jiading Expressway has proved to be a solution to less land utilization and lower project cost. The upper structure of the interchange is built with pretensioning cored slab beam, combined box beam and post-tensioning T beam. To reduce the numbers of expansion joints and improve the runway’s flatness and bridge utility, the bridge surface adopted simple supported beam system with continuous slabs on the top, while the substructure adopts pier foundation. During the construction, we successfully solved the problem of building structures on the soft soil with the aid of the new research finding “setting up embankments on soft soil foundation” In addition, our findings of “fly ash as the filling material of expressway embankments” was given the 1st prize of Shanghai Science and Technology Progress Award and “simulations on expressway traffic system monitoring” was awarded the 2nd prize. In 2014, STEC finished the renovation of Shanghai-Jiading Expressway. This “phoenix nirvana” will surely bring new life to the expressway and grant users a more comfortable driving experience. The completion of Shanghai-Jiading Expressway marks the history of China’s first expressway.

Road Length:47.7 kilometers
Shanghai Inner Ring Road, also known as Shanghai Inner Ring, is the earliest elevated highway constructed in the city, and has a nickname of “Shanghai’s First Ring”. Stretching 47.7 meters, the highway consists of 49 continuous transition curves and straight lines, linking Pudong and Puxi through Nanpu Bridge and Yangpu Bridge. It functions as a protective shell for the city center traffic. The segment of Puxi and Pudong opened to the pubic in 1994 and 2009 separately. The highway has four lanes in both directions, with a speed limit at 80 km/h. Since the construction of the Inner Ring Road, STEC took charge of constructing, designing, renovating the Inner Ring Road and maintaining its Puxi segment. In 1993, STEC took on the task of the first-stage construction and co-designing work of the Inner Ring Road, which was” Shanghai municipal No.1 project”. For the second-stage, we were in charge of the construction and design of the southwestern segment. In terms of the design, we carried out a research with Tongji University about how Shanghai Inner Ring Road’s southwestern segment connect the main roads. The research results significantly impacted the layout of the entire ring road and created lots of new ideas and successful experiences for the later construction of the large interchange in city center. In the new century, we have undertaken the work of designing and renovating the Inner Ring Road’s Pudong segment. Finally, all of the Inner Ring Road was open to the public. We also participated in renovating the ring road, and paving the asphalt layer to welcome the Expo. We also changed the 29 km of street lamps along the Inner Ring Road in Puxi segment. The new street lamps used the LED energy-saving light, with low power consumption, high lighting efficiency, and long service life. The energy-saving efficiency is up to 50%. The light can also withstand Beaufort wind scale. On top of which we created an integrated portable working device with anti wall-bumping. The device looks like a box, in which workers can construct. It can sharply reduce the noise. The innovation also won a national patent. The 2A, first phase of Shanghai Inner Ring Road project constructed by STEC was given the Shanghai Magnolia Quality Project Award in 1993.

Road Length:3.06 kilometers
Shanghai West Xianxia Road Construction Project, located in Hongqiao Integrated Transport Hub, is not only an important part of the road construction work of Hongqiao Integrated Transport Hub but also the biggest single project in Hongqiao municipal supporting project. The total length of the road is 3.06 kilometers. The construction should pass through some affiliated parts of the airport, such as two taxiways in east and west, runway blast pads, runway signal lamp strip. As such, the requirement of the project is very demanding as it has to meet the ground deformation level of the airport. Through the upgrading and innovation in techniques and facilities, we have set a precedence for large slurry shields to cross under shallow soil of the airport runway, which is also the first underpass through the working airport runway in China. We have tackled the key problems by conducting a research “The Key Technology For Slurry Shield with Big Diameter to Pass under Shallow Soil of Airport Runway.” during the construction. We managed a series of innovative results, and won three patents, two software copyrights and a construction technology certification. The project was also given the 1st Prize of Shanghai Science and Technology Progress Award. In addition, the project was honored with several awards, including the 1st prize of National Quality Construction Project, the 3rd prize of National Outstanding Project, and the golden award of Shanghai Municipal Projects. The completion of West Xianxia road successfully optimized and improved the functions and layout of Hongqiao Integrated Transport Hub, coordinated and boosted the regional development and improved the transportation system.

Bridge Length:32.5 Kilometers
Shanghai East China Sea Bridge is the first sea-crossing bridge in mainland China. Its total length is 32.5 kilometers, including 27 kilometers over the sea. STEC constructed the bridge, and is in charge of maintenance. While building this grand bridge, many advanced technologies were used. STEC’s technical staff overcame problems of anticorrosion, fabricating and installing huge concrete box girder, and GPS positioning. These technologies became the standard of building the long-span bridge. Shanghai East China Sea Bridge created many miracles. The 32.5 kilometers length makes it the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world. The two bridge towers are 159 meters’ high, which are the highest in domestic offshore cable-stayed bridge. There is 1.22 kilometers of deep sea dike between the Zhushan Island and the Big Turtle Island. This is also a breakthrough in bridge-building technology. The biggest wonder is the building speed. We used highly efficient construction techniques to overcome the severe situation in open sea, and finished the project within 3 years. As a pioneer of building long sea-crossing bridge, the project’s experience has been practiced widely on building the Hangzhou Bay Bridge and the Qingdao Bay Bridge. The opening of the Shanghai East China Sea Bridge started the building Yangshan deepwater port and speeding up the development of Shanghai international shipping center.

Bridge Length:5.8 Kilometers
Shanghai Minpu Second Bridge’s span is the longest one among the rail joint double-deck cable-stayed bridge with one tower in China. The total length of main bridge is 436.65 meters, and its top deck is road while the other lower deck is two-way light rail. STCE undertook its design and maintenance. Due to the bold design of the Minpu Second Bridge, many breakthroughs were achieved. A cargo ship with 3,000 tons’ load can go through the main hole safely even if it encountered the highest navigable water level once in every 300 years. The main pier is in the center of the river, constructed by fully welded steel truss plate beam structure. The main tower has two cable planes. The 251.4 meters’ span makes the bridge the longest span bridge with a single tower and one cable plane. This bridge also used new type of bridge pier in the form of the Chinese character 干, which was the first time in China. This design not only overcame land space restrictions, but also solved the problem of poor view while navigating, which was previously built in the form of the Chinese character 门. What’s more, we carried out experiments on seismic performance, and worked out the rules of typical single column and double deck bridge when encountering earthquake. This provided experience to build rail joint double-deck cable-stayed bridge. Shanghai MinPu Second Bridge takes a vital role in the development of Fengxian district, which attracts more investors to come. It also shortens the traffic time between Fengxian and Shanghai city center.

Road Length:57.45 kilometers
Jiangsu Changzhou Elevated Highway, 57.45 km in length, is the first elevated highway in Changzhou, crossing over four new and old canal bridges and two Beijing-Shanghai railway bridges. To build the elevated highway on the basis of high standards, high demands and high tastes, we adopted the most advanced fish-bellied circular arc box beam in designing the box beam of the highway. It has the advantages of good overall performance, large torsion rigidity, and large span capacity. The normal pier adopted H-shaped column, which is not only delicate in appearance, but also clear and bright from watching under the bridge. We have positively adopted various energy-saving and green technologies. In terms of energy-saving, we installed embedded low-glare freeway ramp illumination system, which efficiently tackled problems of controlling glare, enhancing illumination level and evenness. It is the first time the system is widely used in China. In terms of land-saving, H-shaped and Y-shaped columns were adopted to save land. The deck space is 784,338 square meters, but the column occupation area is only about 5%. Other spaces were all designed for traffic lanes. We also introduced integrated smart traffic monitoring system by applying computing core technology, information technology, image transmission technology, and fiber optic network, to help drivers as well as the maintenance management unit know the real-time traffic condition through electronic screens. This project achieved a new high standard in terms of the investment scale, technological innovation, digital system, and modernized management. It was awarded the 1st prize and silver prize of National Outstanding Engineering Investigation Design. It was also given the China Construction Engineering Luban Award, and named as Jiangsu Province Model Construction Site and Jiangsu Quality Project.

Bridge Length:16.63 Kilometers
Shanghai Yangtze River Bridge is the biggest rail joint cable-stayed bridge in the world, called “The First Bridge in Yangtze”. Its total length is 16.63 kilometers, and the main navigational hole’s diameter is 730 meters. STEC contracted, designed and built this bridge. We also undertook the daily maintenance. As one of the designers, we cooperated with Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design and Research Institute, bearing in mind the theory of “Design for Users”. We did our best to create and optimize every detail in order to unleash aesthetic value at the same time achieving transportation function. We reserved railway space and kept pace with six traffic lanes in both directions, which is the first case in the world. The main tower is 212 meters high without beam, which is the first case in China. In other words, when building this bridge, we tried new skills and techniques, realizing the perfect combination of strength and beauty. What’s more, the whole line of the bridge was designed into a shape of “S” considering its influence to water flow, and functional requirements. The “S” shape also meets the need of beauty and environmental protection. Based on these creative theories, we forged several word-leading skills which were used in bridge building for the first time. For one thing, the cable-stayed bridge, whose main span is 730 meters in length, used new separated steel box girder. For another, there are 700 meters high pier area that used a series of combining box-girder bridge whose main span is 105 meters. The project of fabricating the whole hole in advance is also a new practice. Asphalt on the bridge floor is only 4 centimeters, so its deadweight is light. We used Germany MOBA MaticII as the method of controlling the evenness. We also researched for long-lasting asphalt, and overcame the influence of marine climate to the bridge floor, in this case, we can ensure the quality. Shanghai Yangtze River Bridge fixed the situation of over a thousand years, there was no road pavement from Chongming Island to the mainland.
