The bridge to the Russky Island in Vladivostok

August 1, 2012 the bridge to the Russian (Russky) Island was opened to private traffic. It is a cable-stayed bridge in Vladivostok, connecting Nazimov Peninsula with Novosilsky Cape on the Russian Island.

The construction of the bridge began September 3, 2008 as part of the city’s preparations for the APEC summit in 2012. The total cost of the project including the access road to the bridge is about $ 2 billion.

The bridge has the world’s largest cable-stayed span (1,104 meters long), and the tallest pylons (324 meters height); total length of the bridge is 1885.53 meters, width – 29.5 meters.

I’m not sure about the reasonability of building such a bridge but at least it is a great place to climb on it.
