What is the fate of the driver?
Its high time we did away with these archaic means of crossing channels.
We need suspension bridges, you done here ferries carrying people in Los Angeles or Hudson Bay!

So sad!! At this time and age we still think ferry is most efficient way to cross this small stretch!!! I think a bridge is long overdue!!

PK mentioned early this week in an interview that this is one of his priorities...

Rest in peace. If they can do a bridge it will save many a life and time. Too many deaths there. I remember sleeping whilst waiting for the ferry for an hour, inebriated at an ungodly hour, from Tandoori... with check-in time at work not so far away.

If you do a bridge across the LIkoni channel, how will ships access the kilindini harbour?

I said so before PK that we need a suspension bridge-gate or a hydraulically operated bridge to allow Steamers to pass through.

What is a suspension bridge GATE?


This is a special purpose bridge suspended over a large mass of water and with an electrically actuated hydraulic gate; an operator through some levers actuates the gate to open hence allowing a big Ship/Steamer to pass through the gate while the traffic is stopped at either side of the highway.

I am afraid of scenes such as these.

Huyu atalala na joto.

Somebody tell me 'A ship can't come to an abrupt stop if a bridge is in the vicinity?
Cz many container ships keep getting stuck under bridges and destroying containers.

By their very nature of design, suspension bridges cannot be discontinuous in mid span. They therefore can not be openable in the middle.
