Oe Bridge, Osaka

The Minato Bridge is a double-deck cantilever truss bridge in Osaka, Japan; upper deck is for Hanshin Expressway Route 16 Osakako Line, and lower deck is Route 5 Bayshore Line. It opened in 1974. It is the third-longest cantilever truss span in the world, behind the Quebec Bridge and the Forth Bridge.
Designs including arch and suspension elements were eliminated from consideration due to poor subsoil conditions of alternating layers of clay and gravel. Instead, the designers selected a cantilever structure using high-strength steel, to reduce mass.

  • This bridge accommodates both pedestrians, cyclists, and motorised traffic. It’s reasonably close to the water’s surface and has bay window type, raised lookouts at either end and in the middle, and is also adorned with large lamps mounted on thick stone pillars. The views from here are lovely, something not spoiled by the other structures overhead.
  • A classy bridge with great views in the evening.
