Starlight Bridge crosses over the Keelung River with a total length of 270m and is located at 800m downstream from Xizhi Chang’an Bridge; it is also the first scenic bridge that crosses over the Keelung River. The Bridge is right adjacent to Wudu Train Station and is exclusively for pedestrians’ and cycling use. It is designed as a single leaning tower cable-stayed bridge with a 75m-high leaning tower column that changes colors every 2 seconds. The main bridge pier is designed as a giant soaring microphone pointing towards the sky; the white tower column and the bridge itself are all installed with dots of lighting, which will exhibit sparkling twinkling starry lights at night – giving the Bridge’s name.
