This bridge across the Singapore river is unique in how it was designed to look like the structure of DNA.
The Gateshead Millennium Bridge in England is unique in that it is one of the few bridges in the world that tilts! When it is tilted one way, it turns into a normal pedestrian bridge that the public can cross over. When it is tilted the other way though it let boats and ships pass beneath.
This extremely bizarre bridge is found in Leeuwarden. Because of the vast amount of rivers running throughout the Netherlands and boat traffic as high as the volume of vehicles, the country needed a bridge able to quickly raise and lower itself; to benefit both road and river traffic.
Opened in 2008 and found in the city of São Paulo, It took 5 years to build and 450 workers to build it. The bridge is unusual due to it’s X shaped structure in the middle. Another attribute to this bridge is how it has two levels of traffic crossing one another as they pass through the pylon.
The bridge was designed to look like waves, as you can guess by the name. It connects 2 of Singapore’s parks, Mount Faber Park and Telok Blangah Hill Park and has a stunning view of Singapore’s natural side
It is a jaw dropping 102 miles in length and recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. The rail bridge forms parts of the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway and as the name suggests it helps link Danyang to Kunshan. Construction started in 2006, took 4 grueling years to be completed and then opened in 2011. The huge project cost an unbelievable 8.5 billion dollars and employed roughly 10,000 workers on site.
Cool huh?? Which is your favorite?
