Yun Lung Suspension Bridge
云龙桥
Nantou, Taiwan, China
328 feet high / 100 meters high
(440) foot span / (134) meter span
1982


Replaced in 1982 with a steel arch bridge, the original single lane Yun Lung Suspension bridge crossed this V-shaped gorge before becoming obsolete. Constructed with just one tower, the main cables terminated into the rock walls on the opposite end of the bridge where the road went straight into a short, right turning tunnel. The original bridge was 328 feet (100 mtrs) above the gorge while the new span is 318 feet (97 mtrs) high. The main arch is 355 feet (108 mtrs) long.


该桥在1982年被一座钢管拱桥代替。在废弃之前,原先是单车道云龙悬索桥跨越了该V字型峡谷。旧桥之间有一个主塔,主缆在大桥的另一端锚固在岩壁之内,而与大桥直接相连的是一条很短的右转的隧道。旧桥在河谷之上100米高,而新桥有97米高。新桥的主拱跨度108米。
