The 9 most intriguing bridge designs in the world – You won’t believe #2 & #3 are man made(With Pics)
4. Nanpu Bridge, Shanghai, China
Situated above the Huangpu River, regarded as the most important river in Shanghai, the Nanpu Bridge is one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world. Its creation made it possible to link the highly-developed Puxi District with the far less-developed Pudong District. But what really makes it stick out is its architectural beauty. At night, its spiral approaches light up, giving it the appearance of a dragon. This feature has made it a popular tourist attraction for visitors of Shanghai.
3. Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan
The third largest rigid-frame bridge in the world, this structure connects several administrative regions of Japan together over Nakaumi Lake. The so-called “rollercoaster bridge” has achieved fame thanks to its deceptive appearance. While the slope’s gradient is only 6.1%, when viewed close up from certain angles, it appears that cars are driving up an impossibly steep incline.
