Bailey bridges are made of easy to assemble truss panels that can be quickly erected to replace a damaged bridge or to allow army vehicles and personnel to easily cross over a river or waterway. The Aradena or Aradaina bridge is a permanent span and is the world’s highest Bailey bridge. Crossing a deep gorge, the 275 foot (84 meter) long truss was a gift from two brothers to their native village of Agios loannis. Since 1999 there has been bungy jumping from the bridge on summer weekends. For information visit
