15 famous bridges in the world. #4 is incredible!

Bridges are one of mankind’s inventions. In addition to feeling the history, it makes you feel the charm as a large infrastructure, the charm of the design, and various romances. Today we received a list of the 15 most famous bridges in the world. Even the most intrepid traveler should think twice before using them. Please take a look.

15. Windsor Suspension Bridge — Upper Rock Nature Reserve, Gibraltar

Again, the views from this bridge are spectacular, but it’s certainly not for the faint of heart. The Windsor Suspension Bridge opened in 2016 and spans over 230 feet of mountainous terrain with breathtaking views all around. Pedestrians are suspended over 160 feet above the ground and do little to prevent them from rolling over railings. You’ll likely feel a bit of a jolt as you cross, but that only adds to the thrill, according to Gibraltar’s tourism team.

14. Autaoji Park, Chongqing, China (Ordovician, Chongqing, China)

A ladder in the sky at 300m above the ground.
As you cross the bridge over this 300-meter-high gap in the sky, it’s more important than ever to ‘be careful’. A bridge is basically just a horizontal ladder with a large gap between each ledge. Protected by harnesses alone, guests can truly live on the edge while precariously hopping from one ledge to the next and avoiding falling between cracks.

13. Coiling Dragon Cliffs — Tianmen Mountain, China

China has been raising the harbingers of a terrifying bridge over the past decade. This is one of the boldest bridges ever. Coiling Dragon Cliffs is a glass walkway that stretches for just 110 yards, but once you step inside, you won’t be thrilled. A path just five feet wide is suspended over 4,600 feet above sea level to add a layer of claustrophobia to the whole affair. The fact that the guardrails only reach up to the waist of an adult makes the whole thing a no-fest of epic proportions.

The trail features a total of 99 meandering turns one after another. Banlong Cliff is the third glass skywalk on Tianmen Mountain. It also has the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, the longest glass-bottom bridge in the world.

12. Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge

Slightly taller than the Royal Gorge Bridge, China’s Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge is currently the tallest suspension bridge in the world, and its entire design was intended to captivate thrill-seekers. Since opening in 2016, this stunning bridge has become a tourist attraction due to its terrifying features of glass-bottomed panels that allow pedestrians to see nearly 1,000 feet below where they stand. Tickets must be booked in advance and only 600 people can ride the bridge at a time. Meanwhile, intrepid visitors can bungee jump from a platform 984 feet in the air.
The bridge can accommodate 800 people and is already being used as the starting point for the world’s highest bungee jump, the architects say. It is also planned to be used as a private event venue, such as being used as a runway for fashion shows.

11. Capilano Suspension Bridge—North Vancouver, Canada

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge over the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The current bridge is 140m long, 70m above the river, and designed to withstand a weight of about 120 tons.

This time, I will introduce the tourist spot “Capilano Suspension Bridge” which can be said to be the number one attraction in Vancouver.

Since it is a place that can be said to be the first choice for those who visit Vancouver sightseeing, we will summarize its charm and how to get there.

The biggest attraction is this suspension bridge. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is, of course, the most recommended spot.

The 137m long suspension bridge may be a little scary for people who are afraid of heights. Some people even freeze their legs when looking into the river.

There are many people on the bridge, so it always sways from side to side while crossing.

There is less shaking in the middle, so if you get scared, run through the middle. Or if you go at night, you can’t see the bottom and there is no fear.

The handrails are high and the steps are well paved so that you don’t miss your step, but there have been several falling accidents in the past, so it’s strictly prohibited to play around.

10. Drift Bridge — Gatmen, Switzerland

Suspended over the Swiss Alps, the Trift Bridge offers some of the most breathtaking views of any bridge in the world. This tourist attraction was built in 2004 and eventually replaced with a “safer” design in 2009, but its simple style is enough to make most travelers think. It’s not just the bridge itself that makes the knee weak. Because to reach the structure in the first place requires a cable car ride and a 90 minute hike.

The Trift Bridge is one of the most spectacular pedestrian suspension bridges in the Alps. At 100m high and 170m long, it sits on top of the Trift Glacier and promises spectacular views for those with a fear of heights. After about a 1.5 hour hike to Trift Bridge, the stunning views of the turquoise glacial lake and glacier tongue more than rewards. Return via SAC Hut Vindeg and take the Trift gondola down to Nessental post office bus stop.

9. Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado

Perhaps the most terrifying major bridge in the Western Hemisphere, Colorado’s Royal Gorge Bridge has terrified visitors since 1929. The bridge was built in just seven months. Such structures are remarkable, spanning more than 1,200 feet of rugged terrain, including the Arkansas River

river. At its highest point, travelers will be a staggering 955 feet above the ground, crossing the tallest bridge in the world from 1929 to 2001. This extreme bridge is not only the tallest suspension bridge in the United States, but it also has an interesting history. It was built in 1929, but 50 years after its construction, it still had no windbreak cables. Since then, the structure has become a tourist attraction and is even home to the bravest of us cable cars.

8. Seven Mile Bridge, Florida

Completed in 1982, the longest bridge in the Florida Keys is wide enough to allow you to stop when your car has a flat tire and admire the perfect green ocean over and over again. Completed in 1912, the bridge, originally a railway bridge, has come to be called the “Eighth Wonder of the World”. Because the very attempt to build something so ambitious on miles of water and soft bottom in a harsh tropical climate seemed a little insane.

Technically, the newest Seven Mile Bridge is actually the second of its kind, but the first bridge was decommissioned because it was directly in the water and could not be passed by boats. It’s not that scary, but imagine driving through during one of Florida’s many hurricanes…

7. Deception Pass Bridge, Washington

Driving a car across this fog-covered bridge may not seem so scary, but what about walking the 180-foot-tall footbridge? Two bridges connect Whidbey Island and Fidalgo Island, but before construction the islands could only be accessed by ferry, so some preferred a boat trip to the wobbly bridge…

The two bridges connect Whidbey Island and Fidalgo Island, but before the bridges, the islands could only be reached by ferry. Many people would rather take a boat than cross this ominous bridge.

6. Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Louisiana

In 1969, Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana was recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s longest bridge over water. But in 2011, a rival from China emerged, threatening to overthrow the 24-mile bridge. But Causeway didn’t give up without a fight.

The longest bridge in the world to cross, this monster sits just 16 feet above the waves and once you’ve ventured, say goodbye to the land behind. Built in the 1950s to connect Mandeville and Metairie, it has remained one of the scariest bridges in the world ever since.

5. Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Florida

The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge, sometimes called the Sunshine Skyway Bridge or simply Skyway, is a cable-stayed bridge that spans lower Tampa Bay, connecting St. Petersburg, Florida, and Teraceia. The current Sunshine Skyway opened in 1987 and is the second bridge of that name on the site. It was designed by Figg & Muller Engineering Group and built by AmericanBridge Company. The bridge is considered Florida’s flagship bridge and serves as the gateway to Tampa Bay.

The four-lane bridge carries Interstate 275 and U.S. Route 19 through Pinellas, Hillsboro, and Manatee counties. This is a toll road and is assessed a $1.50 toll for two-axle vehicles traveling in either direction and collected via cash or the state’s SunPass system. The original bridge opened to traffic in 1954 (68 years ago) and two major maritime disasters occurred within a few months of 1980. In January 1980, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Blackthorn collided with the tanker Capricorn near a bridge, sinking the cutter and the loss of 23 crew members. In May 1980, 35 people were killed when the freighter MV Summit Venture collided with a bridge stanchion during a sudden squall, structurally collapsing the southbound span and driving the vehicle into Tampa Bay. Within a few years, the damaged span was demolished, the remaining span was partially demolished and converted into a long fishing pier, and the current bridge was constructed.

4. Eshima Bridge, Japan

Eshima Ohashi Bridge is a ramen bridge that spans Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture and Sakaiminato City, Tottori Prefecture. Built from 1997 to 2004, it is the largest ramen bridge in Japan and the third largest bridge in the world. Images of the bridge are widely circulated on the Internet because it looks steep when photographed from a distance with a telephoto lens, but the actual slope on the Shimane Prefecture side is 6.1% and 5.1%, which is not very noticeable.

Gradation on the Tottori side. Eshima Ohashi was replaced by the previous drawbridge, and was often blocked by boats for about 7 to 8 minutes. . I don’t need a roller coaster, no, I don’t need to just be alive when I have this bridge on my daily commute and I have to cross that huge, terrifying incline.

3. Immortal Bridge, Huang Shang China

Huangshan or Huangshan is a mountain range in eastern China and a famous and iconic place in the region. The entire range consists of granite peaks, stunning landscapes, heights, and beautiful sunsets. Huangshan in eastern China was formed over 100 million years ago. During this time, they changed shape thousands of times as they passed through glaciers, inspiring many poets and directors. The most famous landmark of this range is the Immortal Bridge. This is the tallest bridge in the world. It takes a sense of adventure and courage to get there.

“Fairy walkable bridge” connecting two rocks at an altitude of 1320m. Until 1987, locals walked over this pool via a road that looked like an old suspension bridge, and many people fell down, so it came to be called “Sennin Bridge”. Although the current bridge is a safe structure for pedestrians, it still retains its former notoriety.

2. Storseisundet Bridge, Norway

Storseisundet Bridge, located on the Mid-Western Norwegian coastline, is part of the cantilever bridge on the Atlanterhavsveien (Atlantic Road). It is built in such a way that when approached from a certain angle, it looks more like a diving board than a bridge. The approach looks scary, as if the bridge seems to end abruptly and any attempt to move forward will cause the vehicle to jump out and fall into the sea below.

It is the longest of the eight bridges that make up the Atlantic Road. It is 260 meters (850 feet) long and has a maximum sea clearance of 23 meters (75 feet). This is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. Known locally as the Drunk Bridge, it is completely safe. But once you start going beyond it, you’ll find that it seems to disappear in front of you as you go. The bridge was described in the 2011 Daily Mail as a “road to nowhere”.

1. China, Sidu River Bridge

The bridge is part of the new G50 Hubei Expressway, which parallels China National Highway 318, the east-west route between Shanghai and Chongqing[1], crossing the broad mountainous area that separates the Sichuan Basin from the lowlands of eastern Hubei province. increase. The Yangtze River penetrates 50 km (31 miles) north through the same mountainous region to form the famous Yangtze River. Completed in 2010 and running parallel to the highway, the Yiwan Line is said to be the most difficult and most expensive (per kilometer) railway in China to build. [7]

The bridge spans the 500-meter (1,600 ft) deep valley of the Sidu River (the left tributary of the Qingjiang River), replacing the Royal Gorge Bridge and Beipanjiang First Bridge as the world’s tallest bridge. It then surpassed DugeBridge in 2016.
