Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Akashi-Kaiky Bridge, also known as the Pearl Bridge, has the longest central span of any suspension bridge, at 1,991 metres. It is located in Japan and was completed in 1998. The bridge links the city of Kobe on the mainland of Honsh to Iwaya on Awaji Island by crossing the busy Akashi Strait. It carries part of the Honsh -Shikoku Highway. The bridge is one of the key links of the Honsh -Shikoku Bridge Project, which created three routes across the Inland Sea. Before the Akashi Kaiky Bridge was built, ferries carried passengers across the Akashi Strait in Japan. This dangerous waterway often experiences severe storms, and in 1955, two ferries sank in the strait during a storm, killing 168 people
