Taiwan ROC - Tainan Qigu River Bridge 臺南七股溪橋


Stamp Issue : 2010-03-10 

This bridge is located in the scenic Qigu Lagoon area, close to the mouth of Zengwen river. Opened to traffic in November, 2007, it has a total length of 440 meters and a width of 40 meters. Its long-span arch design reduces the number of piers needed and reduces its impact on the environment and the ecology. There are walkways along the sides of the bridge, where pedestrians can enjoy views of black-faced spoonbills foraging for food. The arc-shaped railings and the black-faced spoonbill totems blend into the ecological environment seamlessly.
