Bridges have amazed and overwhelmed discoverers all across the world.

A bridge is a structure built to provide passage over physical obstacles such as water bodies, valleys and roads that can be harmful to cross otherwise.

Bridges designs depend largely on the functionality of the bridge, the nature of the land where the bridge is anchored, the construction materials, the structure of the bridge, levels used and how physical elements are distributed across their structures and the funds allocated.

Bridges built are not just attractive but also purposeful. A bridge can be classified based on what it is designated to carry be it trains, pedestrian or road traffic, to help water works with water transport or divert traffic for smooth flow.

To create a beautiful image, some bridges are built much taller than necessary.
