Abstract: After 2002 marking the start of the development of a brand-new ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC), namely K-UHPC, for the advancement of related technology and field-application, the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) has restlessly improved the technological features and economic efficiency of K-UHPC to open and extend its range of application. This paper reviews briefly application examples of K-UHPC to bridges and buildings and gives details on the forthcoming UHPC roadway bridge under erection since 2015 at the entrance of Legoland in Chuncheon, Korea. At its completion previewed at the end of 2017, Legoland Bridge with a total length of 966 m including a cable-stayed bridge of 200 m will be the first of its kind ever built in the world. This very first UHPC roadway cable-stayed bridge will be a revolution in the history of bridge and will bear a particular meaning since, unlike previous UHPC bridges, its construction was selected through general bidding process.
