This relatively simple design yet enjoyed by our ancestors: the following construction of suspension bridges across the large rivers and valleys present in the cultures from ancient Egypt, Southeast Asia to Central and South America.
For the construction of this crossing it is not necessary to build support in the midst of bridge, sufficiently long cables or ropes will do just fine with some flooring and a bit of patience. No wonder that even today there are suspension bridges where there are no other. h/t:fishky
