Shanghai is divided by the HuangPu River, so there are bridges and tunnels to get from the older section of the city Puxi (Poo-she) to the newer section PuDong (Poo-Dong). As with most building in Shanghai it does not just serve a purpose, but can also dazzle the senses. Here are a few that I have snapped over the last few years.
Near the ‘old’ 2010 Expo site. An arch construction that lights up in different colours one at a time then in rainbow each night
A cable construction bridge that is part of the Inner Ring Road. The first picture of the bridge is at the top of the Inner Ring Road and the second from the bottom. Look closely and see the spiral ‘ring’ road and all the cars Both pictures are taken from inside a bus.
Not far from where we live here in PuDong this is the sister bridge to NanPu. They are similar in design and it happens to also be the longest bridge at 8354 m according to Google.
