It is a three span continuous steel cable-stayed bridge on cast-in-place piles that crosses the Tempozan Canal in Osaka. The main span is 350 m long and the side spans are 170 and 120 meters. It was built in 1988 for the Hanshin Expressway Public Corporation and cost 25 million yen.
In 1998, we lived for a month in Kobe on the west side of Osaka Bay. Every day I would watch the smog fill the sky until I could barely see bridges a few hundred meters away.
