10 Jembatan Terindah Di Dunia!!


1.Banpo Bridge (South Korea): The Fountain Bridge
On September 9, 2008, the Banpo Bridge in Seoul (South Korea) got a major facelift: a 10,000-nozzle fountain that runs all the way on both sides. Immediately after being installed, the bridge turned into a major tourist attraction, as the bridge pumps out 190 tons of water per minute using the water from the river below.

2.Millau Bridge (France): World’s Tallest Vehicular Bridge
Towering 1,125-ft above the Tarn Valley in southern France, driving along
the Millau Bridge is said to feel like flying. This Foster + Partners marvel
is slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower, took three years to build and opened
to the public in 2004. While it may provide picturesque views of the valley
below, once the mist descends it is not a route for the faint hearted!
The Millau Bridge has a total length of 8,071-ft with the longest
single span at 1,122-ft and a maximum clearance below of 886-ft; in s
hort the bridge is massively impressive both on paper and in real life.
The deck is lofted on 7 pylons and weighs 36,000 tonnes. A series
of 7 masts, each 292-ft tall and weighing 700 tonnes, are attached to
the corresponding pylons.

world, with 35,673 kilometres (22 mi) long with six expressway lanes in t
wo directions. The bridge was built to address traffic congestion in the
booming region, cutting the driving time between Shanghai and

5.Rolling Bridge (UK): The Bridge that Curls Up on Itself
Designed by Heatherwick Studio, the award-winning Rolling Bridge is
located Paddington Basin, London. Rather than a conventional
opening bridge mechanism, consisting of a single rigid element that lifts
to let boats pass, the Rolling Bridge gets out of the way by curling
up until its two ends touch. While in its horizontal position, the bridge
is a normal, inconspicuous steel and timber footbridge; fully open,
it forms a circle on one bank of the water that bears little resemblance
to its former self.
Twelve metres long, the bridge is made in eight steel and timber
sections, and is made to curl by hydraulic rams set into the handrail
between each section.

6.Oliveira Bridge (Brazil): World’s First X-shaped Cable Stayed Bridge
with two crossed lanes
The Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge over the Pinheiros River in São Paulo,
Brazil was opened in May 2008. It is 138 metres (450-ft) tall, and connects
Marginal Pinheiros to Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue. Its design is
unique in that the 2 curved decks of the bridge cross each other through
its X-shaped supporting tower.

7.Wind and Rain Bridge (China): Dong people’s bridge
The Wind and Rain Bridge is the symbolized architecture of the Dong
minority people. The wind and rain bridge in Diping is the largest of
its kind in Guizhou Province, where China’s biggest Dong community lives.
The bridge is over 50 meters long and it was first built in 1894 during the
Qing Dynasty over 100 years ago. However, the original structure was
destroyed in a big fire in 1959 and the one visitors see today was a recreation
finished in 1964.

8.Tower Bridge (UK): Most Famous and Beautiful Victorian Bridge
Completed in 1894 and designed by Horace Jones and Wolfe Barry,
Tower Bridge (so named after the two, striking, 141-ft high towers and
the Tower of London close to it) is one of the most famous landmarks
in London and one of the most beautiful in the world. The 800-ft long
bridge has a 28-ft clearance when closed but raises in the centre to
a maximum clearance of 140-ft that allows ships to pass down the
Thames. Back in the days when goods were moved by sea instead
of air the bridge was raised around 50 times daily. Tower Bridge
took 432 workers 8 years to build. During that time they sank
70,000 tonnes of concrete into 2 huge piers, lowered 2 counterbalanced
bascules into place each weighing 1,000 tonnes and then clad the whole
bridge in Portland stone and Cornish granite to disguise the 11,000 tonnes
of steel beneath.

9.Magdeburg Water Bridge (Germany): Europe’s Largest Water Bridge
The Magdeburg Water Bridge connects the former East and West Germany over
the Elbe River, and it was made as part of the unification project. 1 km long,
the 500 million euros water bridge enables river barges to avoid a lengthy and
sometimes unreliable passage along the Elbe.

10.Ponte Vecchio (Italy): Oldest and Most Famous of its kind
The Ponte Vecchio in Florence is one of the most famous tourist spots in Italy,
and is thought to be the oldest wholly-stone built, segmental arch bridge in
Europe, although there are many partial segments which date further back.
It was originally built of wood until destroyed by floods in 1333, and
twelve years later it was rebuilt using stone. Famous for its lining of shops,
the bridge has housed everybody from Medieval merchants and butchers to
souvenir stalls and art dealers.
