Re: Dangerous Driving

Yes, you're right there Asbo Dog.  It's in France but didn't know we designed it.

Re: Dangerous Driving

The second one looks like the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in Virginia (although I am not 100% sure it is the same bridge)
Quote
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel opened as a two-lane highway in 1964. Thirty-five years later, the southbound side opened, making it a four-lane highway. The 20-mile road connects Southeastern Virginia to the Delmarva Peninsula and cuts 95 miles from the trip between Virginia Beach, Virginia and points north of WIlmington, Delaware. It is made of two high bridges, two, one-mile tunnels, four man-made islands, and 12 miles of trestle. Each island is 10 acres in size and has almost 1.2 million tons of rock armor. The 12 miles of trestle are supported by more than 5000 concrete piles.


I have driven over this a few times and am ok with it now but the first time was really strange because I thought it was just bridge and didn't know about the tunnels or that the toll is
$12.00!

Norman Foster sounds fairly British to me.

Re: Dangerous Driving

Uhmm! yes good clip pierre, not too sure what its got to do with the thread but, it would be nice to see some of this fancy kit being supplied to our boys, instead of them being blown up in out-moded soft sided Land Rovers, rather than the sales people congratulating themselves on its presentation in an exhibition.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
