The Humber Bridge is a suspension bridge which spans the Humber esturay between Hull and Grimsby in England. It was the longest suspension bridge in the world from 1981 to 1998. It is also England's longest suspension bridge. About 120,000 cars cross the bridge every week. But how long can the Humber Bridge last without people?
1 day after people: As power fails across the world the lights atop the Humber Bridge go out.
20 years after people: The cables are doing good but soon the zinc will peel off and the steel will corrode..
100 years after people: The Humber Bridge still stands across the Humber esturay, but now one of the steel cables fail and this triggers others to fail. The roadway falls over 100ft into the Humber esturay. Though the towers still stand.
150 years after people. Like the Ambassador Bridge the catenary cables keep the towers standing. But because there is no roadway left the catenary cables are out of shaped. Finally the catenary cables give way and the towers fall into the esturay. Hull and Grimsby are now forever seperated.
