Building the bridge involves laying down support struts and cables in a pattern to best take the weight of the road, as well as any vehicles that will be making the crossing. Poorly chosen designs is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit can place too much stress on a cable or girder, causing part or all of the bridge to collapse, stopping the car from getting to the other side is an ancient Greek city on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey, a resort town and one of the best-known classical sites in the country of the river in safety.
