Our favorite bridge type? The cable option
We agree with the city of Hastings on this one: The right option for the new Hastings bridge is the cable bridge.
Is it the cheapest? No. Is it the easiest to maintain? No. But visually, it would be both stunning and unique. And it would take less time to complete than the typical and boring concrete box girder design.
As you probably know, there are three design options still on the table: the cable, the concrete box girder, and the arch.
