Constructing A Bridge (Arch Bridge)

SKU Code: REMZ95

Arch bridges are one of the oldest types ofbridges and have been around for thousandsof years with a great natural strength. When the wooden blocks are connected this means that each block locks the other stones in place - a bridge is constructed. In the bridge, each block on the arch of the bridge press on the one next to it. This happens until the push is applied to the end supports, which are embedded in the ground. The ground around the supports is squeezed and pushes back on the support points.
