Akashi Kaikyō Bridge
The central span was originally only 1,990 m (6,529 ft), but the Kobe earthquake on January 17, 1995, moved the two towers sufficiently (only the towers had been erected at the time) so that it had to be increased by 1 m (3.3 ft). spans: design: $4.3 billion cost of building: The bridge was designed with a two-hinged stiffening girder system, allowing the structure to withstand winds of 286 kilometres per hour (178 mph), earthquakes measuring to 8.5 on the Richter scale, and harsh sea currents. The bridge also contains pendulums that are designed to operate at the resonance frequency of the bridge to damp forces. The two main supporting towers rise 298 m (978 ft) above sea level, and the bridge can expand because of heating up to 2 metres (7 ft) over the course of a day. Daikai Subway Station Collapse - 1995 Kobe Earthquake, Japan The principal modes of relative displacement Kobe subway, interurbans
Kobe has 5 separate mass transit facilities: the Kobe Rapid Railways, the Seinshin subway, the Hanshin underground, the Portliner elevated guideway, and the Rokko-Liner light metro.

system to collapse due to an earthquake. The quake caused the Hanshin Electric Railway cars to fall on to streets from elevated tracks and parts of the Rokkoliner to collapse.
