abandoned motorway bridge

Post by Gav »

I may be imaging this but....

Im pretty sure I saw on google earth a motorway bridge over a river built what 70's 80's in prep for a bypass that was never built.

Anyone on here know about this as i cant seem to find it again,

There is also one in the Czech Republic which was supposed to be used for a new Autobahn. Building started in 1939 but it was never completed.

It did make it onto GSV though.

https://goo.gl/maps/7E5BkEZpgmEs8Hd69 abandoned Netherlands bridge - looks like it's undergoing repairs of some sort.
