|March 2012 (35.703 Degrees, 139.834 Degrees) Shin Ohara Bridge|
The first bridge is the Shin Ohara Bashi, a wide steel box girder bridge (built in 1976) that carries vehicles without sidewalks. Just behind it is the tiny Ohara Bashi, which carries bicyclists and pedestrians and further back is the Tobu Kameido Railway Bridge, which was built at grade. The Shin Ohara Bashi has a 40 m long span over the river on concrete piers with shallower approach spans at each end. Note the big sound walls on the barrier rails.
We are approaching the Sky Tree Tower, which is hidden by the overcast sky but which will eventually dominate the landscape.
