Flipper bridge

How incredible is this idea for a bridge?  The unique bridge between mainland China and Hong Kong was developed in order to organize cars for the switch between driving from the left hand side (Hong Kong) and the right (China) and vice versa.  An ingenious plan by NL Architects was to create a flipper bridge that would split the traffic at one point and weave it back together, with cars now driving on the correct sides per government requirements. Pretty amazing, if you ask me.
