Description:
This waymark category is for the type of pedestrian bridge which is suspended by cables. They can also be known as swinging bridges as the smaller ones swing and bounce when you walk over them!
Expanded Description:
Formerly the Suspension bridges for pedestrians only locationless cache (GCD66F)

A suspension bridge suspends the path from main cables or ropes, which extend from one end of the bridge to the other. These cables rest on top of high towers and have to be securely anchored into the bank at either end of the bridge.

The towers enable the main cables to be draped over long distances. Most of the weight or load of the bridge is transferred by the cables to the anchorage systems. These are imbedded in either solid rock or huge concrete blocks.

Cable Stayed Pedestrian Bridges will also be accepted in this category. In the cable-stayed bridge, the towers form the primary load-bearing structure. A cantilever approach is often used for support of the bridge deck near the towers, but areas further from them are supported by cables running directly to the towers. This has the disadvantage, compared to the suspension bridge, of the cables pulling to the sides as opposed to directly up, requiring the bridge deck to be stronger to resist the resulting horizontal compression loads; but has the advantage of not requiring firm anchorages to resist a horizontal pull of the cables, as in the suspension bridge. All static horizontal forces are balanced so that the supporting tower does not tend to tilt or slide, needing only to resist such forces from the live loads.
