Design proposal

By looking at the Clifton bridge and the use of suspension to secure the strength I came up with a design that is frankly quite simple. Even though it might not hold a lot of weigh it'd be fun to build it just to see how it will react to the load and whether it corrects some of the points we failed on. So this is me trying to recreate Clifton bridge with the materials we have, not entirely sure whether the feasible. This is basically me exploring different styles of technique, we already build an arch, perhaps suspension is the one. "A TEAM" have used suspension really intelligently, their structure held more weight than expected. From the looks of things the structure wouldn't twist due to the rope, till be using its own structure to counter weigh the live load and the foam beams support it.
