Aim Above the Mark to Hit the Mark

To cope with the demands of comfortable transportation engineers during the ancient period came up with the concept of a suspension bridge. It plays a very significant role in easing the complexities of transportations.  The designs of the bridge are made to fill up the gaps causing physical obstacles and to create an easy passage. Majority of the bridges proved to be a landmark construction for the nation where it is housed or constructed. Many of these bridges are having a royal and rich history which acted as a reason for the popularity of the decks. Some are perfect engineering wonders and must visit spots for the tourists to the nations. Below we are mentioning the names of some of the famous bridges which are built so far.
