Road bridge over the Tisza, Szeged, Hungary, 2001.
Tisza Szeged

Tender invite by:
Local authorities of Municipality of the City of Szeged.
Eleven Design studios from Hungary, Germany and Serbia (one studio) were invited to tender.
Team of authors presented it's project in City hall in April 2001.
Competition team:
DEL ING d.o.o., Belgrade,
(ex Delfin Inženjering d.o.o.).


Depending on the construction phases, two variants of the structure were proposed, both with the same structure concept. Variant 1 - Bridge with 4 road lanes; Variant 2 - two separate structures with 2 road lanes each. Bridge structure: 1) bridge over the river is system of cable stayed bridge 216 +54 +54 m, 2) approach bridge, 4 x 54 m. Total bridge width is 23.40 m. Bridge beam over the river and the continuous girder of the approach bridge are composite steel-concrete sections. Bridge pylon over the river is concrete in the lower parts and steel in the upper part. Taking in considerations the minimum cost and aesthetic analysis this bridge system has been chosen.
