Description

Ohnaruto bridge, Japan. Also called Onaruto bridge, it links Awaji and Shikoku islands across the Naruto kaikyo, or Naruto strait, world-known for the Naruto whirlpools. Completed in 1985, the Ohnaruto bridge was designed to carry both cars and trains on the upper and lower decks respectively. The train link was never completed and the newer Akashi bridge does not carry trains. The bridge’s lower deck carries today water between Awaji and Shikoku islands, and the tourist walkway. Looking from the Southern end on 17 Oct. 2001.
