    aitortilla01 present you now the Verrazano-Narrows bridge from New york City! It is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City at the Narrows, the reach connecting the relatively protected upper bay with the larger lower bay.

    Things to consider

    - The bridge is made up of two bridges, just like Uokiok's Sydney Harbour Bridge: The central span with the two towers (bridge 1) and an extension bridge for each end (bridge 2). I recommend laying the Bridge 1 first, upgrade it to Bridge 2 using the upgrade panel, and then snap the Bridge 2 extensions on each end towards the highway connections.


    Upgrade to connect the two bridge types together:

    - If you are a real pro, however, you will want to give your bridge some curvature in its midpoint. No bridge this long is completely flat, there's always a curvature with a higher clearance in the mid point. To achieve something similar, given the technical limitations, then do as follows: (i) create a small piece with Bridge 2 higher than its default height, (ii) upgrade it to Bridge 1 and then draw some bridges in oposite directions sloping down a little and stopping just before it switches from one tower to two towers, (iii) upgrade the whole structure again to Bridge 2 and (iv) draw some Bridge 2 extensions towards the highway connections.

    - It may happen that, depending on the stretch and compression of the towers, some lights near the towers float up in the air a little. In this case, destroy the bridge and rebuild it again.
