The Strangest Bridge You’ve Ever Seen

I’ve never heard of a transporter bridge before. The Newport Transporter Bridge has served those who cross the River Usk in Wales for a hundred years now. It’s like a ferry, but it’s a bridge instead of a boat. In other words, you ride across in a cable car, sort of. Why?

Tom Scott (previously at Neatorama) explains the reasons the bridge was built this way, and the reasons they don’t make bridges like this anymore. He also walked across it, which you can see here. -via Digg
