Gaoping River Cable-Stayed Bridge
Taiwan
The Gaoping River Cable-Stayed Bridge is a part of the National Highway No.3 laid across Gaoping River and is an important bridge connecting Kaohsiung and Pingtung with a length of 2617 meters. The construction of the bridge was finished and launched in 1999. It is the first hybrid cable-stayed bridge in Taiwan that sustains a road surface height of 40 meters. The A-shaped tower of the bridge, connected with red cable, is of 183.5 meters high that is equivalent to the height of a 60 stories building. The span of bridge is the second longest in the World (after the Rhine Bridge in Germany), and the longest in the Southeast Asia. It is the classic of modern design that looks beautiful and elegant with lighting at night.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
