The principle of supporting a bridge deck by inclined tension members leading to towers on either side of the span has been known for centuries. However, the real development of cable-stayed bridges did not begin before the 1950s. Since then the free span has been increased from 183 m in the Strömsund Bridge (from 1955) to 890 m in the Tatara Bridge (from 1999).
