akashi kaikyo bridge

Linking Kobe on the Honshū mainland to Awaji, an island in Japan’s Inland Sea, Akashi Kaikyo is the world’s longest suspension bridge; the central suspended section is almost 2km long, and makes up half the length of the entire structure. It took two million workers and a decade to build, and the steel cable used to construct it would encircle the Earth just over seven times.
