- Summary:- A 12.3 km long sea crossing is currently under construction at Incheon in South Korea. At a cost of US$1.4 billion, the crossing will link the new Incheon International Airport on Yeongjong island to Songdo (New City) and the new International Free Enterprise Zone (IFEZ) which are both currently under construction. A cable stayed bridge will cross the 625.5m wide by 74m high navigation channel leading to the Port of Incheon. With an 800m long main span, this will be the longest spanning bridge in South Korea and will form part of one of the longest sea crossings in the world. A joint venture team comprising Halcrow, Arup and local consultant Dasan was appointed by design and construct contractor Samsung Construction JV (SCJV) as the Contractor's Checking Engineer (CCE) in March 2005.
