The unique bridge

This suspension bridge in Malaysia is a unique engineering structure, the envelope of a single metal support 87 meters in height. From it depart eight cables that support the walkway of the bridge. When you stand on the bridge, the feeling of fear is intensified by the fact that it is not perpendicular to the bearing surface, but tilted slightly to one side. With a view on one of the most beautiful archipelagos of the world's oceans - with hundreds of small islands and tiny coves. The bridge is successfully operating since 2004 and is safe, according to local residents. Its height above sea level - 685 meters.
