Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of Great Lali Bridge project has been awarded to Boland Payeh Co. This project is the first stayed cable bridge designed and constructed in Iran, and has been chosen as the “Best Concrete Structure of Iran” by Iranian Concrete Institute in 2011.
Considering the fact that Lali Bridge was BP’s first stayed-cable bridge experience, BP has chosen Freysisnet, a French company, to consult BP in calculation and execution of stayed cables of the bridge. More than 1.800 tons of reinforcement rebar, 20,000 m3 of concrete and 35,000 m2 of formwork has been used and 150,000 m3 of earthwork has been done.
Great Lali Bridge was built to provide an alternative and shorter route to for passengers between Lali and Masjed Suleiman cities after the previous road connecting these two cities submerge under water due to construction of Gotvand dam. In addition, Lali bridge provides a shorter way to transport oil and gas to and from the region.
This project was started in late 2007, and was completed in 2011.
