The world’s most dangerous road bridge?

 

Some of you may remember last year’s post titled “The world’s most dangerous bridge?” It showed a foot bridge in Northern Pakistan that required nerves of steel if you were to cross it. Today, completely by chance, I came across an equally dramatic road bridge in Siberia which looks to be quite a novel experience, too!

Here’s the bridge…

…and here’s footage of a vehicle crossing the bridge…

…and, if you think that looked hairy, take a look at this motorcyclist who crosses the bridge in just 40 seconds!

    Are you kidding. Seen much worse. That bridge may look wonky, but it’s stout. Made of railroad ties – that can support a helluva load – probably close to 20 tons per axle.

    Well… it doesn’t look so safe to me. Perhaps you could share with us some examples of poorer bridges being used by vehicles, Paul?

    Just because it doesn’t look safe to you doesn’t mean its the worlds MOST dangerous bridge – there are plenty out there, just use the tinternet

    Thanks for that, Dean. Did you miss the question mark in the title?
