Looking Back: Hanging Bridge

Foot or Support of the old Hnaging bridge, Taken from the mainland side

Used to be an iconic landmark in Catanauan,Quezon. This bridge was made from wood and hanging with support of hundred of ropes. Although it isn't exisit anymore, it remains as special memory in the heart of every Catanauan.

I would like to thank Mr. Pit Maningat for his article and picture.

The old Hanging Wooden Bridge
The Catnaauan hanging bridge

Built between 1979 and 1982 , this hanging bridge use to be an ICON of Catanauan Quezon,a bridge that connect KAIBAYO to the mainland ,a bridge where locals congregate and have some fun, a bridge where lovers meet , explore and just feel free like a bird,and a bridge where some foreigners have praised it as a national treasure.

It was captured orginally on an old good SLIDES during my vacation in Catanauan back in April 1983, recaptured on the modern blackberry storm just recently for the present young Generation to see and contemplate how breathtaking it is to have something like this to emerge in a sleepy hamlet like Catanauan, this bridge does not exist anymore as it was ferociously destroyed by several destructive typhoons between 1986 and 1988.
