Ampera Bridge is a vertical-lift bridge in the city of Palembang city in Indonesia. It associates Seberang Ulu and Seberang Ilir, two areas of Palembang. It can never be again opened to enable boats to pass. The extension was arranged amid the period of Indonesia's first president, who needed a scaffold that could open and be a counterpart for London's Tower Bridge. The assets for the development originated from Japanese war reparations, with the Fuji Car Manufacturing Co. Ltd being given duty regarding plan and development.
Be that as it may, at the time, Japan had no extensions of this write, and Fuji Car had no scaffold building knowledge. At in the first place, the extension was known as the Bung Karno Bridge, after the president, however following his fall, it was renamed the Ampera Bridge. At the focal point of the scaffold is lifted, vessels of 60 meters wide and with a most extreme tallness of 44.50 meters, can go to the Musi River.
At the point when the focal piece of the extension isn't expelled, the higher the most extreme vessel can go under the scaffold just nine meters from the surface of the stream water. Since 1970, the extension will never again be expanded or diminished. The reason, the time used to lift the scaffold, which is around 30 minutes, is viewed as irritating the stream of activity between Seberang Ulu and Ilir, two zones in Palembang that isolated by the Musi River.
