Nanfang'ao Bridge


Nanfang'ao Bridge, completed in 1998, is the only single steel arch bridge in Taiwan and is the first bifurcated single arch bridge in Asia. 140 meters in length and 15 meters in width, the bridge sits across a waterway in the fishing port. Its arch solves the dilemma where larger fishing boats might not be able to pass. Thanks to this solution, Nanfang'ao Fishing Port can keep developing toward the future. Nanfang'ao Fishing Port is now an important shortcut that connects Doufu Cape and the new port on the east side. Nanfang'ao Port also forms a circular network with the harbor road network. The design on the bridge's column- fish, shrimps and crabs-represents the image of Nanfang'ao that is closely related to the ocean. The observation deck commands a great view of the outgoing and incoming fishing boats. The bridge also symbolizes a critical milestone of the development of local fishery in Nanfang'ao.
