Heihe-Blagoveshchensk Heilongjiang River (Amur River) Road Bridge Project | Heihe City, Heilongjiang, China
The Heihe-Blagoveshchensk Heilongjiang River (Amur River) Road Bridge connects Heihe City, China to Blagoveshchensk City, Russia. The length of the entire route is 19.9 kilometers, with the cable-stayed bridge portion spanning 1,284 meters in length. Located in the alpine region, the project is subject to extreme temperature variations and strict environmental protection. To meet these challenges and accommodate a short construction schedule, the project team implemented a collaborative BIM approach for delivery of the infrastructure project.
The project team used Bentley’s BIM technology, reality modeling applications, and ProjectWise for collaborative design, modeling, construction management, and information sharing for optimal project coordination through construction. Accurate modeling with ProStructures reduced construction errors and rework, saving five working days and 30 tons of materials. Design and collaboration using OpenRoads and ProjectWise improved modeling efficiency by 35 percent.
