The Dutch built a water bridge that breaks the laws of physics

In 2002, the world admired the Veluwemeer Aqueduct — the masterpiece of the best engineers that connected the Netherlands mainland and Flevoland, an artificial island.

Various ideas were discussed, including an underwater tunnel and an ordinary bridge. But these projects were way too expensive, and they would have taken much more time. The main idea was to let both ground and water transport move without hindrance, traffic jams, or ferries.

Finally, the most incredible decision was brought to life: a water bridge. Pedestrians were not forgotten, either — there are specially equipped sidewalks on either side of the highway.
Today, more than 28,000 cars cross this 10-feet-deep bridge, and boats serenely travel through the waters over it.
