Minato 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.

  • The view point of this bridge is overlooking from the floor where the spa of the Universal City Tower Hotel is located. It is a stylish red iron bridge for a moment. It is the most beautiful bridge in Osaka.

  • When I went to Kansai International Airport, I crossed the Port Bridge in the Bay Area of Osaka. It is a bridge of the Hanshin Expressway and it is a bridge of two stories. Because it is high, it is a bridge which can be seen well from the vicinity, but there was not a chance to cross easily, and it crossed at last by my car.
