Here are some pics of the most amazing and totally cool bridges in the world!! You gotta take a look at these!

25. Helix Bridge

This bridge across the Singapore river is unique in how it was designed to look like the structure of DNA.

20. Gateshead Millenium Bridge

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.

16. Slauerhoffbrug Bridge

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. 

15

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. 

13. henderson Waves Bridge

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

01-Danyang-Kunshan-Grand-Bridge

 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?

  • this one wont be built but i thought the idea was really cool. it helps switch the traffic from right side of the road in one country to left side of the road in another country. it was designed for Hong Kong to China (i cant remember who drives on what side haha).

  • "How did you find these?'Staci


    I get real bored, and I am a real nerd, and I came across this site called something like the Top 25 of whatever. There are more bridges, but these were the coolest. Anyway, here is the site. You out to check it out. It has really funny top 25, and you got the top 25 of the deadliest critters, and so on.


    This is the link to thr bridges I found...http://list25.com/25-of-the-worlds-most-unique-bridges/2/


    ANd when you get there, on the top left hand side there is a little folder type icon, and you get to pick out whatever top 25 things you like. They have it on topics such as...... arts and literature...bizarre.....geographic and travel (which is my fav one) and lots of others. You can take hours on this site just looking at stuff.
