Suspension bridge : Simple & work well

zie, 2012
I believe many people might think this old-fashioned bridge, suspension bridge, is no longer existed.  Indeed, this type of bridge is widely used in the province of Bengkulu to connect many isolated areas around the province. Some of them come in very narrow width, to solely fit pedestrians or bicycle. Others could allow the mini van to across the bridge  for agricultural mobility.

Look at the portal across the bridge pole. This is designed to prevent truck or bigger vehicle to cross the bridge so this bridge will sustain to be used by mostly farmers to take their agricultural products such palm oil, coffee, rice, vegetables and other rural products. .In addition, since this type of bridge usually connect the agricultural areas, going through this path will be fun for hiking or cross country cycling.
