This paper reports a systematic research (Super Bridge 200) of Korea Institute of Construction Technology (KICT) to develop a competitive cable stayed bridge system using the advantages of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC). Since 2007, various structural analyses and experiments on UHPC specimens and structures have been performed to develop design guidelines and manufacturing specifications. Based on this research, KICT developed a new kind of edge girder type cable stayed bridge system using UHPC for the main span of 200 m ~ 800 m and its economic feasibility was verified. To realize the developed system, KICT designed and constructed an UHPC pedestrian cable stayed bridge with the span length of 14 m in 2009. In addition, in 2011, KICT together with a construction company designed the first UHPC highway cable stayed bridge in detail for the open tender for Jobal Bridge, and constructed an UHPC highway bridge at Andong, Korea in 2012.,
