What Is Flyover?
- Flyovers, over a flyover, underpasses, overpasses, etc. are some examples of the engineering marvels that allow for the effort of people and saving of time, vehicles, and even trains.
- Normally flyover is made over water bodies like rivers, but over bridges are meant into provide the roadway for pedestrians and even vehicles over a railway line or even under the flyover.
- The flyover is a concept that allows roads to be built over roads to facilitate faster movement of vehicles and people in this age of congested traffic at metro cities.
- There are differences in overbridge and flyover.
- The flyover is also known as the overpass that is built over an existing road or the railway in such a manner that it crosses another road or railway.
- It helps in saving the time for a commuter whether they are pedestrians or running automobiles and have become very commonplace at big cities these days.
- However, Criticisms of flyovers as they lead to wastage of precious space at this form of huge pillars that go up on the existing road.
- But their benefits outweigh their shortcomings as they facilitate more efficient and faster transport of people and vehicles.

What Is Bridge?
Information on Bridge.
- This first bridges made by humans were probably spans of planks or wooden logs and eventually stones, using a crossbeam arrangement and simple support.
- Most of these early bridges couldn’t support heavy weights or withstand strong currents.
- It was these inadequacies that led to the development of better bridges. The oldest surviving stone bridge in China is the Zhaozhou Bridge, built from 605 to 595 AD during the Sui Dynasty.
- The bridge is also historically significant as it is the world’s oldest open-spandrel stone segmental arch bridge.
