Description

Akashi Bridge
When two ferries sunk in the Akashi Strait in 1955, killing 168 people, public outrage convinced the Japanese government to build a bridge over the notoriously dangerous waterway. It took 40 odd years for the bridge to be realised, but what a bridge it is: at 3,911m this impressive structure has the longest central span of any suspension bridge in the world.
