My favorite bridge in my country: Québec bridge. It collapsed two times during the construction (89 workers died) and was completed in 1917. Its center span of 549 meters (1800 ft) remains the longest cantilevered bridge span in the world.

This one is amazing! I love the art deco statues. Gives you a feeling of Batman's Gotham City.

Yes, very beautiful, Sydney skyline will not be complete without it. You wouldn't believe some loser want it pull down.
