Rainbow Bridge (Tokyo)

The Rainbow Bridge is a suspension bridge crossing northern Tokyo Bay between Shibaura Pier and the Odaiba waterfront development in Minato, Japan. It was built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, with construction starting in 1987 and completed in 1993; the bridge is 798 metres long with a main span of 580 metres. Called the "Shuto Expressway No. 11 Daiba Route - Port of Tokyo Connector Bridge," the name "'Rainbow Bridge" was decided by the public. The towers supporting the bridge are white in color, designed to harmonize with the skyline of central Tokyo seen from Odaiba. There are lamps placed on the wires supporting the bridge, which are illuminated into three different colors, red and green every night using solar energy obtained during the day; the bridge can be accessed by foot from Tamachi Station or Shibaura-futō Station on the mainland side. The Rainbow Bridge carries three transportation lines on two decks; the upper deck carries the Shuto Expressway's Daiba Route, while the lower deck carries the Yurikamome rapid transit system in the centre, walkways on the outer side, Tokyo Prefectural Route 482 in-between.

Route 482 was a tolled road, but opposition to the toll led to its removal. Light motorcycles under 50cc are not permitted on the walkway of the bridge. Motorcycle pillion passengers are banned; the bridge has south sides of the lower deck. The walkways may only be used during certain hours Bicycles are permitted on the condition that they are pushed.
