Foreshore Freeway Bridge

Foreshore Freeway Bridge is the unfinished bridge of SA

The bustling city of Cape Town, on South Africa’s southwest coast, launched a massive infrastructure project in the late 1960s to manage its ever-increasing traffic and congestion. Abandoned since the 1970’s, it’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Work on the Foreshore Freeway Bridge, an incomplete section of the projected Eastern Boulevard Highway, began in the early 1970s but was halted in 1977 without explanation. Since then, the structure has been dubbed the "Unfinished Bridge". The structure has become somewhat of a tourist attraction over the years and is also a popular movie and fashion shoot location. [ If you look closely, you might be able to recognize this bridge from some of your favourite action movies.

Despite the fact that efforts to complete it have never stopped — a contract was most recently proposed in 2018 — it remains abandoned to this date and spooky as ever too. So if you want to experience a bridge that’s been stopped mid-construction, you can visit this abandoned structure.
