Jan 22, 2009: Cantilevered Bridge

This is about the strangest bridge I could imagine. Actually I wouldn't have imagined it, or even believed it before I saw the pictures.



It's pretty simple and really rather ingenious, using a minimum of materials and minimum footprint on valuable land.



This bridge is in Leeuwarden, Netherlands... it looks like something York would build for his daughter.

Wonder if it could be super powered. Bet it could really launch those cars high.



SPUCK  Thursday Jan 22 06:01 AM

They should've added a big head on it.



Griff  Thursday Jan 22 06:15 AM

Very very cool.



dmg1969  Thursday Jan 22 07:44 AM

Pretty cool...even if it does look like a giant spatula.



capnhowdy  Thursday Jan 22 08:06 AM

The skys look threatening. Hope everybody has their tops up.

They should use these instead of the rising bollards.

..or something Wile E. Coyote would order from Acme.



Linnepin  Thursday Jan 22 03:38 PM

That's funny; I regularly drive over that bridge! If you are used to it, it's not that special; but looking at the pictures it's actually pretty cool.



Linnepin  Thursday Jan 22 03:47 PM

By the way; the sky is typical dutch... a 'hollandse lucht' (almost always dark and threatening) (http://www.dutchlight.nl/www/html/eng/film/home.htm)



Shawnee123  Thursday Jan 22 03:47 PM

Well hello Linnepin! Welcome.

The Netherlands is (are?) one of my dream vacations! OK, Holland is one of my dream vacations.



Linnepin  Thursday Jan 22 04:09 PM

Hello!
'Nederland' is flat, has a sea-climate (wich explanes the threatening skies and lot's of rain :-( ) But is also a lot more than windmills, wooden shoes, smoking pot (amsterdam); it has a rich history and beautiful landscapes and old cities.



Shawnee123  Thursday Jan 22 04:11 PM

That's why i want to go. Plus, I'm a huge fan of Van Gogh, and would like to go to the museum.

I've heard wonderful things, and think I would love it there. Oh, and I love rain...so I also have that!



sweetwater  Thursday Jan 22 06:05 PM

That bridge just looks so... polite. I'd want to hang a towel over one of its arms. How many yards of terry would that be?



capnhowdy  Thursday Jan 22 06:06 PM

Welcome, Linnepin!
I'd like to visit your country also.
Enjoy the Cellar.



Pie  Thursday Jan 22 09:23 PM

Hi, Linnie! I'd also like to visit. Is it okay if I drop by about 3pm?



Crimson Ghost  Friday Jan 23 01:00 AM

You had me at 'smoking pot'.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jan 23 02:44 AM

Hi Linnepin, I know what you mean about seeing something every day and are surprised when someone seeing it for the first time finds it amazing.
The Netherlands has lots to see, like this advertisement.

Welcome to the Cellar.



Linnepin  Friday Jan 23 03:29 AM

"Hi, Linnie! I'd also like to visit. Is it okay if I drop by about 3pm?"

You're welcome! 3pm dutch time I presume? I live in a mediaeval Hansa city with a "special" bridge! It has golden wheels!

See you about 3pm! :-)
