7 Most longest Pedestrian Bridge in the world
7 THE LONGEST PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE IN THE WORLD
1. BOB KERREY pedestrian Bridge, located in Omaha, Nebraska, Council Bluffs, Iowa. AMERICA. The bridge is named after former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey, with the construction of two towers as high as 200 feet or 61 m and a free distance of 52 feet or 16 m above the river and a bridge length of 3000 feet or 910 meters. The laying of the first stone for bridge construction took place on October 26, 2006. It was inaugurated with a ceremony on September 28, 2008 accompanied by the Phil Collins song In The Air Tonight.
2. SCENIC CAVE SUSPENSION BRIDGE, With a length of 420 feet or 320 meters, the suspension bridge is the longest in southern Ontario with the best views of the Gulf of Georgia in the United States and beyond. The suspension bridge can be accessed by foot or take a train for 30 minutes to reach the summit. Being 82 feet above the forest forest land gives a sensation like floating between an old forest.
3. Titlis Cliff Walk is a pedestrian bridge along the cliffs of Mount Titlis in the Swiss Alps. Built at around 10,000 feet or 3,000 meters above sea level, this bridge is believed to be the highest altitude suspension bridge in Europe, breaking the record held by the Salbit Bridge, also located in Switzerland. This bridge has a length of about 320 feet or 98 meters but its width is only 3 feet or 0.91 meters. This project was designed as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Engelberg Gerschnialp cable railroad in January 1913. The project was officially opened on December 7, 2012. On a clear day, we can see the glacier 1,500 feet or 460 meters under a bridge with Mountains Uri and parts of Italy. Designed to withstand winds that reach more than 120 miles per hour or 190 km / hour and significant snow. At a cost of around £ 1 million, it is hoped the bridge will become a significant tourist attraction. Media reports called it this bridge that is the most frightening in the world and Swiss tourism called it a kind of new adventure that drives adrenaline but is guaranteed to be very safe, and, it is impossible to fall off the bridge.
4. The pedestrian suspension bridge 'Raiffeisen Skywalk' stretches on the very romantic Lauitobel Gorge at 58 meters. This bridge offers fantastic views to the Ägital valley. Visitors in wheelchairs and families with wheelchairs can also feel this sensation, thanks to the wide bridge width at Sattel-Hochstuckli Switzerland along the 374 meters. The width of the bridge, 1.8 meters and 0.9 meters, with a load capacity of 1050 adults.
5. Sochi Skybridge is actually a Skypark which is operated under the famous bungee operator AJ Hackett, RUSSIA. Exciting sports attractions include the 207 meter high bungee jump, 69 meter bungee and 170 meter swing. The giant range of Skybridge consists of eight 52mm cables connected by thick beams 5 meters apart. The cable below is a path with a number of steps down designed to keep the deck flat.
6. Trift Bridge - Switzerland, is a pedestrian only suspension bridge in the Swiss Alps. The bridge stretches 170 meters or 560 feet at an altitude of 100 meters or 330 feet. The Trift Bridge stretches on the lake, Triftsee, near Gadmen, Switzerland, an area that is visited by about 20,000 tourists a year to see the Trift Glacier. The bridge was built in 2004, because glaciers are no longer high enough to bring visitors to the Trift Hut from the Swiss Alpine Club. Then the replacement bridge was opened on June 12, 2009. To reach the bridge requires a cable car ride from Meiringen, with a gondola that climbs for 1.5 hours leading to the bridge.
7. Highline179 is located near Reutte in the Bavarian-Austrian Border, extends at an altitude of 114 meters or 374 feet above Ehrenburg castle and connects the Ehrenburg ruins with Fort Claudia with a span of 403 meters or 1,322 feet. Bridge Construction 1.20 m wide consists of a lattice. Support lines are tied on both sides of the bridge with a total of 16 anchors that extend to the rock to a depth of 17 m. The bridge weighs around 70 tons. One end of the bridge is 9.85 m higher than the other end, the load capacity is 1000 people, but for safety reasons only 500 people can be on the bridge at the same time. The idea for the bridge construction came from Maximilian Huttenloher in 1952 to 2009 and was built under architect Armin Walch, who was also involved in planning the Hängebrücke Holzgau. Construction began in April 2014, and was formalized on November 22, 2014. After a thorough inspection, highline179 was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest crossing bridge in the Tibetan style.

Pedestrian Bridge Connects KATY Trail to Jefferson City
The Katy Trail now is connected to its trailhead park in Jefferson City. The state park on the north side of the Missouri River now links to the city greenway system, thanks to the bicycle/pedestrian bridge attachment officially opened Friday.
The city's greenway system designates West Main Street as a link to the Lewis and Clark Monument Trailhead Plaza at the corner of Capitol Avenue and Jefferson Street.
The five bronze statues of members of the Corps of Discovery face the Missouri River.
Winding around the 1,100 feet of concrete ramps, LeRoy Heman led more than 100 cyclists and walkers from the Noren access up to the Missouri River bicycle/pedestrian bridge Friday.
With his daughter Jennifer riding in a trailer behind his bicycle, they had the honor of being the first official travelers on the pedestrian/bicycle attachment to the U.S. 54 eastbound/U.S. 63 northbound Missouri River bridge after the ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning.
It's quite an honor, Heman said. It's the high point of our day, our year maybe.
Behind the Hemans was Pat Jones, a long-time supporter of the Katy Trail State Park project, who was pulled in a bicycle buggy. The pedestrian/bicycle bridge officially will be named in honor of Jones on April 20.
The 1,400-foot-long attached bridge now connects the Katy Trail to the Capital City.
