Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - Electric powered vehicles.

We are not ready today; not ready for tomorrow, yet.

Perhaps that’s why there’s no public route or planning for MBBridge.

Melbourne’s Bay Bridge - “Good for the region and in bad weather.”

“BRIDGES aren’t usually that controversial that get you from A to B. End of.”
Not unlike the new Crimea Bridge opened last month. 19kms / 40k vehicles a day.

Quote:
Moscow hit back at condemnation of the bridge from the US State Department. On Facebook, the Russian Embassy in Washington DC said: “Crimea is Russia. We shall not ask for anybody’s permission to build transport infrastructure for the sake of the population of Russian regions.”

Car traffic across the bridge began on Wednesday, and it’s set to open for trucks in the Northern autumn. A parallel railway bridge is set to be finished by the end of 2019.

Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014 following a hastily called local vote, a move that drew US and the EU sanctions.

Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - Mercy Gateway Bridge

Oh Melbourne, if only we could have imagined.

Opening this Bridge gave The Queen and Meghan the biggest joyful smiles.
Just Google search (images) ‘Queen and Meghan Mercy Gateway Bridge.’
Phenomenal!

Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - Underwater currents?

About 3km’s across at the most narrow gap, Port Phillip Heads is like the neck of an hour glass.
The power focused there can be very heavy against big ships like these.

However, 5km’s back and inside bay where the water is more calm and less focused. Here is where ‘this is the place for a bridge’; with tide hydro secured below to the base of the piers.



I reckon that engineers ‘worth their salt’ could do it.. free power 24/7. Water 832 times density of wind.

Melbournes’ Bay Bridge - What about that wind?

Talking engineering for profit this time. Let’s look at facts.
