What A Bridge? ... Or Is It A Tunnel? 
24th-Jan-2010 10:26 pm
Adventure before dementia

I don't do tunnels ... and am wary of bridges - so, don't think I will be travelling on this -

Photobucket

The bridge (or should it be called tunnel) goes under water to allow movement of ships . In order for ships to pass, this bridge is half under the water. You drive down in the water and then come out on the other side. Truly a marvelous piece of engineering! This bridge is between Sweden and Denmark. The picture was taken from the Sweden side.

Can't abide bridges, water or tunnels. Guess that's me never going thar :D

Yep - someone else will have to go and take the photo for me, as well!

I could probably do it as long as I could be assured no traffic back-up! I've done the Chunnel and the '7-mile-bridge' in the Florida Keys. Unique experiences, but yes, somewhat nerve-wracking too. :)

No .... I tend to want to either hold my breath ... or scream! And that is just going through The Dartford Tunnel (which is only a mile long!!)

The tunnel wouldn't bother me. It's the bridge over the water that would freak me out. I tend to scream my head off or bury myself under my jacket going over bridges over water. They terrify me. I only get scared on bridges that go over water. High places don't scare me. It's going over the water that is a nightmare.

I'm pretty much with you, on this! I have nightmares about the Forth Road Bridge - you can see the water between the carriageways...

As I just told kudagirl, for me it's the other way round, that's the worse thought .... I tend to want to either hold my breath ... or scream! And that is just going through The Dartford Tunnel !!

No, for me the tunnel is worse than the thought of the bridge (which is scary enough) .... I tend to want to either hold my breath ... or scream! And that is just going through The Dartford Tunnel (which is only a mile long!!)

Okay, that's just freaky!!
25th-Jan-2010 08:46 am (UTC)
That's one word for it!!!!

I saw this picture not that long ago! Cant remember where.

It kind of scares me the though of using that.

The whole idea is scarey ... but, especially the tunnel ... I tend to want to either hold my breath ... or scream! And that is just going through The Dartford Tunnel!

(PS - Enjoy going back to work today!)

That's cool! I don't think it'd bother me - but then, I didn't know driving in the mountains bothered me till I moved to Nevada. Heh. I've never had trouble driving across the Mississippi River, though, or the Chicago Skyway bridge, and I've been a passenger going to and from Canada over bridges and through the Detroit-Windsor tunnel, so who knows?

I am not too bad with bridges - but tunnels ... they either make me hold my breath, or I want to scream!!
25th-Jan-2010 05:56 pm (UTC)
Mr Cee did some seismic work on this which I didn't know until he told me he did today!! :D

Very scary - I wonder what it's like on the bridge part when it's windy!!!!
25th-Jan-2010 06:03 pm (UTC)
Hadn't thought about windy weather! For me I find Dartmouth Tunnel long enough - it makes me want to hold my breath ... or scream!!!

Wow - amazing to know someone, who know's someone!!!!

That is so cool - can I volunteer to check it out? Looks like something Chris would love to drive on/over/under/into.
26th-Jan-2010 10:05 pm (UTC)
Judging by most of the other comments ... and my own thoughts, you and Chris will ahve an empty road!

Good luck!!
