This suspension bridge is resistant to strong underwater currents and wind speeds of up to 80 meters per second, and it is not afraid of the earthquake to 8.5 points. This is largely due to a particularly strong, the strong rope, assembled by a special system – from a variety of steel wire bundles, with each bundle consisted of more than a hundred wires with a diameter of 5 millimeters. The suspension bridge was built by two million workers, it took $ 5 billion. Therefore, the cost of travel on the suspension bridge is large enough – 20 dollars. As a result, only few people can afford to pass on the bridge, while all other use ferries.
