"It's a clever solution to a very real and obvious problem, however.

The bridge is part of a proposal by NL Architects to connect Hong Kong with mainland China. To do that, they had to solve a problem: In Hong Kong, people drive on the left side of the road. In mainland China, they drive on the right side. Here's the solution: A road flipper that physically twists the roads over each other."

    A beautiful, existing solution to the same problem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Bridge

      Your precedent is hideous and based off of traditional infrastructure. The Lotus Bridge uses way more material than needed! I say the proposed bridge is a more beautiful and a practical solution.

    That's what I was thinking about, when you drive from The Netherlands to England.
    But I don't think that could fit in the tunnel.

    I don't really see how one bridge going over the other is very...creative...? Then again, I guess I live where they have some pretty crazy bridges too(pic related).
