9 Bridges We Like

Here at Yellow Express we like bridges. We like roads too. And when you have a bridge that has a road on it… well lookout! The Chinese Government just unveiled the world’s longest bridge (over water) and we thought we would list our favourite bridges.

 

THE JIAOZHOU BAY BRIDGE

This six-lane, 42.5 km long, earthquake-proof bridge links China’s eastern port city of Qingdao to the island of Huangdao

The Jiaozhou Bay Bridge

 

THE MILLAU VIADUCT FRANCE

The Millau Viaduct connecting Paris and Barcelona features the highest bridge piers ever constructed – 803 feet (245 metres). The overall height of the bridge tops out at 1125 feet (343 metres) which makes it 19 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower!

THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE – SAN FRANCISCO USA

KAWAZU – JAPAN

Looks more like a round-about than a bridge!

MAGDEBURG WATER BRIDGE – GERMANY

This amazing bridge (it is really an aqueduct) carries boats … and a lot of water!

THE NEW RIVER GORGE BRIDGE – FAYETTEVILLE WEST VIRGINA USA

SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE – SYDNEY AUSTRALIA

We saved the best until last… it is our own Sydney Harbour Bridge… we say that because we helped build it.

We were part of the team that moved steel used in the construction of the bridge and like the bridge, we are still looking after the needs of Sydney for either removals or couriers.
