Stay Road

Although the basic design dates back to the 16th century, cable-stayed bridges differ from their suspension predecessors in that they don't require anchorages, nor do they need two towers. Instead, the cables run from the roadway up to a single tower that bears the weight alone and is responsible for absorbing and dealing with compressional forces.

Today, cable-stayed bridges are popular because they offer all the advantages of a suspension bridge but at a lower cost for spans of 150 to 850 metres (500 to 2,800 feet).
