Bridge Thread. In the middle of all the crap that /b/ is filled with these days, someone posted a bridge thread which died in a few posts. Here's my attempt to start it again.

My local bridge, Clifton in Bristol UK, designed by Brunel.

Local pedestrian bridge, perth WA

>>734087584
This one is nearly a mile long and has a cycle path on the north side looking up the river. Stopping half way across, high up in a big wide open space is neat when you live in the city.

FFS engineers these days...

Further up the Severn is Iron Bridge, the first big bridge to be made of cast iron, in 1781.

i like bridge

>>734087831
Neat bit of engineering.
>>
>>734087982
It might seem like an odd thing to like, but I've travelled a fair bit and I always notice bridges, the engineering, the aesthetics.

This marvelous bridge was built in 1942 in Germany.
Because you could cross a winding river from 4 sides, it was revolutionary at the time.
It has sadly been destroyed in the war, that's why we only have these wonderful artistic expressions here.
>>
>>734088091
Was just about to post this very image. I've been over the road bridge which runs parallel with the rail bridge, good view.
>>
Holy shit, this thread.

Bump.

I would post my bridge, but I blew it up a couple of weeks ago.

Fake and gay.

>>734088236
Simple and neat. Though as the LGBT crowd have pretty much take over the rainbow as their symbol, I guess this is the world's first gay bridge?

Eh? Every summer there is a hot air balloon festival in Bristol and sights like this are common. Pic does look a bit filtered though.

>>734088091
The one right next to it, and then the one currently being built next to that. Fourth road bridge is a cool bridge.

Bridge over the River Kwai

>british engineering

"The bridge crosses the valley of the river Tarn near Millau and on cloudy days the bridge appears to almost float on the clouds. It was designed by the English architect Lord Norman Foster, cost £272 million and was entirely privately financed. French President Jacques Chirac called the bridge ‘a miracle of equilibrium’"

I guess it's a deeper-water dock for cargo ships. But yes, initial thought was, why?

>>734088700
Sorry, collaboration between English architect and French engineer. It looks fantastic, but will fall down eventually.

>>734088730
Hampton Roads bridge tunnel, so you can get from one side to the other and ships can still come and go.
>>
>>734088858
is a bridge actually a good way to kill yourself? Like when you by chance survive you will be so fucked up that you won't be able to kill yourself anymore

>>734088858
And another local suicide, Ritchie from the Manic Street Preachers probably took a dive off the Severn Bridge. They found his car there.
>>
>>734088910
Ah, that explains why there is an identical one on the other side. So I was completely wrong about it being a dock.
>>
>>734088987
Ha, crazy.

OP here, thanks guys, got to go.
>>
>>734088979
There's a documentary about the Golden Gate bridge as a suicide hotspot. In the documentary they interviewed a guy that jumped and lived. The Coast Guard fished him out of the water and took him to the hospital. He said as soon as his hands left the rails, he felt instant regret.
