Nelson Mandela Bridge

 Bertha St, Braamfontein Johannesburg South Africa , Braamfontein     updated 19 Oct 2017
created 11 Dec 2013

Completed in 2003 The Nelson Mandela Bridge is the city’s most impressive new landmark, especially by night when it lights up with the colours of the rainbow. With a length of 284 metres it is the biggest cable-stayed bridge in Southern Africa. Practically the bridge links Braamfontein to Newtown, while symbolically it recalls Nelson Mandela bridging the divides created by Apartheid. Drive across it.
