Bridge construction comes in many different forms, depending on the landscape the bridge is hoping to cross. For example, a body of water, a mountain range or a road.

Bridge construction comes in many different forms, depending on the landscape the bridge is hoping to cross. For example, a body of water, a mountain range or a road. The terrain the bridge is being built on largely determines the type of bridge that is used. Some examples of bridges are: a beam bridge, where horizontal beams are supported at each end by a structure unit. They can either be solely supported by these structures, or have continuous support if the bridge is particularly long. A suspension bridge is suspended by cables that are attached to high towers. A cantilever bridge is build much the same way as a beam bridge, except that two beams extend from either end and meet in the middle. Swing bridges are designed to raise to allow passage along rivers to deliver stock to docklands up river.
