If Dapeng Bay Bridge was built to fulfill the two local neighborhood residents' needs, the freedom that came along must be the fruit of this most considerate-ever public infrastructure design in Taiwan.

Dapeng Bay Bridge links up Nanping and Jialian Neighborhoods. It is 579 meters long and 30 meters wide, inaugurated in March 2011. A unique three-dimensional cable-stayed bridge, it looks like a sailing boat from the sides and a letter A from the back. Most importantly, it is Taiwan's first bridge that can open up and fold down.
Dapeng Bay is in fact a bag-shaped lagoon. Below the bridge is the lagoon's only outlet to the seas. Although setting up the bridge is helpful to land transport, it may hinder the area's developments as a leisure yacht and sailboat port. As a result, the bridge was designed to be an "opening" bridge. It can go up 75 degrees, with a 20 meters gap. The "bridge-opening shows" have been must-sees among holiday visitors.
