This is a list of bridges 1 through 100 (of 276 total) in the suspension bridge inventory completed from 1975 through 2012. Please email (aspan@bridgemeister.com) with corrections, suggestions, submissions, and criticism. I frequently make updates and add images. Please allow time for the page and images to load.

Notes
  • This is not the popular wire rope crossing at Glen Nevis which is literally three ropes -- two to hold onto and one to walk on. Instead, this listing is a traditional suspension footbridge just north of Glen Nevis.
  • Don McGillivray worked on this bridge and sent information about its construction.
    "The Suspension bridge was principally built by five Royal Engineers from 15 Field Support Squadron Royal Engineers in the summer of 1982. They were Sapper Terry Bradley (Metal workworker) Sapper Paul Brookes (Draughtsman), Sapper Ian Duggan (Surveyor), Sapper Taff Green (Draughtsman) Sapper Don McGillivray (Blacksmith).
    "The pier footings and anchorages were excavated by hand as the plant machines were being used on another project at Caol and upriver at the priority bridge opposite the YMCA.The Accrow shuttering and Re-bar was humped and Concrete was pumped across the river over a series of aluminium Mk4 assualt boats. Once the concrete cured, the steel work, provided by Highland Engineering was manhandled across the river using the same boats. The steel uprights and main cable were raised and positioned using a block and tackle from a wooden Gyn. The main cables were anchored on the east bank and were tensioned on the west bank using two tirfor winches. The hangers and stringers were strung out from the west bank in a series like stepping stones until the decking could be positioned.
    "The Bridge took five weeks start to finish the best part of the build was the weather which was hot and as we were constantly dropping tools etc. in the river, you had to jump in after it. We later moved up to finish the two span through deck bridge at the YMCA. This bridge replaced an old narrow bridge that used to be a part of a WW2 Mulberry Harbour section."

Notes
  • 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.

Notes
  • Lisa Youngblut writes: "My husband and his summer crew, the Iowa Youth Conservation Corp, built this bridge in the summer 1984. They used spades, shovels, hammers and nails, a handsaw and a brace and bit. Half of the materials, including 4 yards of concrete, were shipped to the other side of the ravine on a zip line. The cement was bucket brigaded from the zip line to the piling and the anchors."

Notes
  • Collapsed under weight of a light truck driven by Kenneth Richards killing Richards. Built by the New Zealand Army for the Berryman family, the bridge's collapse precipitated a long legal battle between the Berrymans (on whose land the bridge was built), the Occupation Safety and Health Department (suing the Berrymans over Richards' death) and the Army (accused of concealing a report stating the bridge's collapse was partially due to a design flaw).
  • Replaced Hayes - Retaruke, King Country, New Zealand.
