The Minato Bridge is a double-deck cantilever truss bridge in Osaka, Japan; upper deck is for Hanshin Expressway Route 16 Osakako Line, and lower deck is Route 5 Bayshore Line. It opened in 1974. It is the third-longest cantilever truss span in the world, behind the Quebec Bridge and the Forth Bridge.
Designs including arch and suspension elements were eliminated from consideration due to poor subsoil conditions of alternating layers of clay and gravel. Instead, the designers selected a cantilever structure using high-strength steel, to reduce mass.

Minato Bridge Reviews
この橋のビューポイントは、ユニバーサルシティタワーホテルのスパがある階から眺めると全景が見えます。ちょっとお洒落な赤鉄橋です。大阪で１番美しい橋です。 more »The view point of this bridge is overlooking from the floor where the spa of the Universal City Tower Hotel is located. It is a stylish red iron bridge for a moment. It is the most beautiful bridge in Osaka.
関西国際空港へ行く際に渡ったのが大阪のベイエリアにある港大橋です。阪神高速道路の橋で２階建ての橋になっています。高さがあるので周辺からもよく見える橋ですが、渡る機会はなかなかなくてようやく自分の車で渡りました。 more »When I went to Kansai International Airport, I crossed the Port Bridge in the Bay Area of Osaka. It is a bridge of the Hanshin Expressway and it is a bridge of two stories. Because it is high, it is a bridge which can be seen well from the vicinity, but there was not a chance to cross easily, and it crossed at last by my car.
大阪ベイアリアにある、大阪のシンボルブリッジ。横浜ベイブリッジや東京のレインボーブリッジのような派手さはありませんが、質実剛健さを備えた優美な姿をしています。伊丹空港を出発した飛行機の機内からも、赤い橋の姿は良く目立ちます。 more »Symbol of Osaka is Osaka Bavaria, bridge. To the Spartan, with no pizazz of the Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo and Yokohama Bay Bridge in a graceful pose. Appearance of the Red Bridge stand out better from the airplane departed from Itami airport.
