  • This is a big modern bridge that is impressive in its engineering, but not especially beautiful. And it's practical for transport.  more »
  • Elegant architectural building, the bridge works with vertical displacement. It's nice to see from above the water flow around the white pillar that deflect the river flow away from the poles.
  • It is beautiful at night and there isn't many people,well , at least when I went.
