Melancong ke New York 9: Williamsburg Bridge

Sambung lagi sesi Melancong ke New York.

Jambatan terakhir - yang paling tak glamer antara 3 yang dilawati - Williamsburg Bridge.



The Williamsburg Bridge is a suspension bridge in New York City across the East River connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan at Delancey Street with the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn at Broadway.

 Walaupun menggunakan principle yang sama (suspension bridge) tetapi ada sedikit kelainan:

It is an unconventional structure, as suspension bridges go; though the main span hangs from cables in the usual manner, the side spans leading to the approaches are supported by trusswork, drawing no support from the cables above.

Nampak tak di penghujung jambatan tu, tiada lagi suspension cable menegak. Maksudnya, berat jambatan itu tidak lagi diambil oleh kabel tetapi sistem truss yang ada. Truss ini adalah sesuatu yang penting bagi structural engineers dan diajar di seluruh universiti untuk pelajar Civil Engineering tahap Bachelor Degree.

 Spesifikasi:

The main span of the bridge is 1,600 feet (490 m) long. The entire bridge is 7,308 feet (2,227 m) long between cable anchor terminals, and the deck is 118 feet (36 m) wide. The height at the center of the bridge is 135 feet (41 m) and each tower is 335 feet (102 m); these measurements taken from the river's surface at high water mark.

Jambatan ini dan Manhattan Bridge sajalah yang dibenarkan untuk bawa kenderaan jalan raya dan keretapi di atasnya. Yang lain tidak dibenarkan.

 Pada June 22, 2003 genaplah usia jambatan ini 100 tahun!

 Tahun 1980an, jambatan ini "dibina" semula disebabkan maintenance yang sepatutnya dijalankan sebelum ini ditangguh. Maksudnya, semua kumpul sekali  baru buat sekali maintenance. Of course, maintenance jadi major works.

Jambatan besi walaupun kukuh tetapi musuh utamanya adalah karat (corrosion). Pada April 12, 1988 jambatan ini ditutup keseluruhannya kerana inspektor telah terjumpa satu kawasan yang diserang oleh karat dengan dahsyatnya.

Jambatan boleh roboh sebab karat ni jadi it was a wise decision.

 Disebabkan tak sepopular dua jambatan tadi, no poetry has been written about it, as Hart Crane did with the Brooklyn Bridge. No songs have been written about it, as Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel did with the 59th Street (Queensboro) Bridge.

 Namun begitu, tetap massive!

 Cuma takde la mana-mana direktor dan produser filem mahu menggunakan jambatan ini sebagai set filem mereka. Apapun, in the end - jambatan mestilah menjalankan tanggungjawab hakiki beliau iaitu menghubungkan dua tempat. Hal ini dilakukan oleh jambatan ini dengan jayanya.

 Off we go!
