Over a kilometre long, this bridge in Vladivostok was built for the 2012 APEC conference, which was hosted at the Far Eastern Federal University campus on Russky Island. The longest cable-stayed bridge in the world, with construction costs of over USD 1 billion, the bridge can handle over 50,000 cars per day. Only problem - the population of Russky Island is a mere 5,000, so the Putin-backed megaproject is barely used.
North Korea returns for the second time in this list with this 3km bridge linking Dandong, China with Sinuiju, North Korea. The bridge cost China over US$300 million to build and was supposed to replace the previous Sino-Korean friendship bridge.
While construction began in 2011 and is largely complete, North Korea failed to build anything on their side of the river, so the bridge is completely disconnected from the road network, and the bridge terminates in a large field.
End your tour of Basel at the historic Middle Bridge. Opened in 1226, this crossing connects Grossbasel (Old Town Basel) and Kleinbasel (lesser Basel) where trades used to be conducted. The bridge itself is a majestic beauty. On top of that, it’s where you will find the best view of the Old Town and the Rhine!
