They call it most dangerous bridge in Siberia. It exceeds 500 meter in lengths and trucks have to slowly crawl all way thru it high above Siberian river Vitim. More photos and videos inside.

This is the video showing the process of crossing the river via this bridge. Not everyone dares to do this on his own.

Motorcycle is the easiest way to pass thru this bridge.

 

Here is a first person video of the process:

In reality its an old rail road bridge, however this is the shortest path across the river and the  truck drivers risk their lives to save a few kilometers of extra miles and gas.

  1. First photo…..these types of truck and trailers are not allowed on US roads….Russia should know these are very dangerous and unstable on highways.

    • Why is it that America and Americans insist on telling the rest of the world how to live yet, they don’t even have a universal health care like their neighbor to the north?

      • So please ignore my comment and advice about dangerous trucks.
        Medical care is available to everyone regardless of ability to pay for it…..that is the law in every state of the USA..

  2. I have just looked up Vitim River in Wikipedia and found that it is actually a very substantial, almost 2000 kilometer long tributary of the mighty Lena … and I hadn’t even heard of it! Schwere Bildungslücke, as they say in Germany 🙂 Everybody knows Dnieper, Danube, Rhine, Seine, Loire, Rhone and even Po and Thames are prominent little rivers here in Europe. The same goes for North America, South America, Africa … I am quite familiar all major and some minor rivers on these continents. How come I know so little about Russia or the Soviet Union as it was when I went to school? Is it possible that we were systematically undereducated not only about the country’s highly advanced socialist society and its many achievements but even about its geography?

  3. Really, Douglas, you seem to be living in some sort of fantasy land by your own making. Or are you being paid for spreading such falsehoods?

    Of 17 high-income countries studied by the National Institutes of Health in 2013, the United States had the highest or near-highest prevalence of obesity, car accidents, infant mortality, heart and lung disease, sexually transmitted infections, adolescent pregnancies, injuries, and homicides.

    A 2014 survey of the healthcare systems of 11 developed countries found the US healthcare system to be the most expensive and worst-performing in terms of health access, efficiency, and equity.

    Despite being among the top world economic powers, the US remains the sole industrialized nation in the world without universal health care coverage.

    Prohibitively high cost is the primary reason Americans give for problems accessing health care. At over 27 million, higher than the entire population of Australia, the number of people without health insurance coverage in the United States is one of the primary concerns raised by advocates of health care reform.

    Lack of health insurance is associated with increased mortality, about sixty thousand preventable deaths per year, depending on the study.

    A 2012 study for the years 2002–2008 found that about 25% of all senior citizens declared bankruptcy due to medical expenses, and 43% were forced to mortgage or sell their primary residence.

    … and to put this all in the wider context of life in the present day U.S.,
