DaNang is not famous for its beautiful sandy beaches but also the bridge is an important part of Danang’s cityscape. Danang’s bridges do not only contribute to the economic development of the city but also links all the tourist destinations in the city which now has a nickname – the city of bridges.
Bridge – One of Da Nang’s most outstanding features and no doubt the first one that strikes many a visitor to this fair city. It is set of awesome, beautiful, amazing and often eccentric bridges.
1.Han River Bridge – the country’s first swing bridge
Han River Bridge is the first bridge that Vietnamese architects and workers designed. It was built by the people of Danang and holds a special place in their pride for their city. The bridge is the unique swing bridge to be built in Vietnam and it is also an important part of Danang’s cityscape.\r\nThe Han River Bridge is the symbol of new vitality and the developing desire of the city was built with the contribution of the entire city’s people. It does not also facilitate transport and potential for tourism but also a cultural spot of Danang people today left behind for the future generations.
2.Thuan Phuoc bridge – the country’s longest cabled-stay bridge
Built on the coast of Vietnam and divided by the Han River, the port city of Da Nang, Vietnam is a thriving commercial hub and tourist hotspot. The city hosts a bustling internal market and export system that requires goods to be transported by air, land, and sea into and out of the city center and its districts. To facilitate this transportation process, multiple bridges criss-cross the Han River, providing a path for goods and traffic.
3.Nguyen Van Troi Bridge
The unusual design of the bridge, particularly the single inclining tower, presented a number of technical challenges. The effective width of the deck is 34.5m, and the cables in the main span are located along the middle line of the bridge. The western abutment is also designed as a ballast load for the heavy 230m-long main span. The bridge will have six lanes for traffic, plus pedestrian sidewalks on both sides.
According to CNN:
Dragon a symbol of Asian prosperity, the dragon is an ideal image for a city on the rise and has been taken to heart by the people who live here.
Dragon-themed trinkets can be bought along the banks of the Han River, which the bridge spans and nearby hotels take their name from the structure.\r\nEach weekend, after sunset, residents and visitors are treated to a pyrotechnic show that adds flair to what could have easily been a routine civil engineering project.
