This fascinating guide to the design and construction of bridges and tunnels through the ages combines fact-packed, easy-to-read text with colourful and quirky illustrations.

Each spread has multiple entry points, including an introductory paragraph, illustrations and side panels such as Fascinating Fact, Can You Believe It?, and Try It Yourself, which provide additional information and handy advice.
