Nowadays, many countries are competing in the erection of long-span bridges with main span longer than 2,000 m owing to the tremendous innovations realized in the domain of high performance and high strength materials as well as in the design and construction technologies. The near future will see a boom in the market of suspension bridges with main span longer than 3,000 m. Since three-dimensionally shaped high concrete pylons would be unavoidably required to construct these super long-span bridges, need is to develop advanced slip form systems for their erection. This paper presents the development of a slip form system applying lightweight GFRP panel. Improved slip form management technology is secured by introducing a slip-up technique using GPS-based verticality control and wireless early strength estimation. A mock-up test is conducted by designing and fabricating the slip form system based on the developed techniques.
