Wow, a double cable-stayed span, you don't see that often. (The Rio Antirio bridge in Greece comes to mind).

Bridges is another one of my favourite part of the road networks. I especially love concrete cable styles. I think the name Golden Ears is rather good. How many bridges have Ears in their title, now that is standing out. Beautiful pictures.
