the world's most spectacular roads

 

Known as The Bridge of Death or Oh My God bridge, this extremely narrow bridge is located on the road from Jaco to Quepos on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Cars can travel only in one direction. It barely looks like it could hold a bicycle, let alone a 30 tonne lorry. But trucks cross this deathtrap on a regular basis. The bridge looks like it could crumble at any moment, but apparently large trucks drive over it and people survive. The loose slats of the roadway clank loudly while the bridge shakes under the weight of all the vehicles. This bridge was built by the "Bananera Company" in the years 1930-40, and it was built for the train that move the bananas to the port of Quepos.
