In order to prevent falls during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, a safety net was installed under the structure. Workers also wore face masks, anti-glare goggles and wind cream. To successfully erect this megastructure, multiple technical, safety and economic barriers had to be overcome.
The challenge of overcoming distances has led engineers to develop surprising and complex solutions, which find their ultimate expression in bridges. In this review we encounter both impressive examples of recently built bridges and the innovative methods used to erect them.
