Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Kiyosu Bridge across the Sumida River (2)
June 2011 (35.682 Degrees, 139.792 Degrees) Kiyosu Bridge
Here's a closer look at the Kiyosu Bridge. The towers are short and supported on pinned bearings. 'Spined' box girders carry the suspension link forces between the ends of the bridge. The bridge functions like a continuous prestressed girder with the suspension links performing the role of the prestressing tendons.
