This is a single suspension bridge from my historical inventory of suspension bridges.
Follow the Inventory link for more information about the inventory.
|Matadi, Dem. Rep. of the Congo (Zaire) (Congo River)|
|Use:||Vehicular (two-lane heavy)|
|Main cables:||Wire (steel)|
- Longest suspension bridge in Africa when completed.
- Designed to carry a railway on deck below the roadway, but I'm not sure if the railway was ever operational. From photos of the site, I don't see how the rail approaches could have been accomodated unless there are tunnels on both sides of the bridge.
Do you have any information or photos about this bridge that you would like to share? Please email
