    I had a similar project a few weeks ago. I didn't do too well on it... :frown:

    The only advice anyone can give you is test, test and test! Make lots of bridge designs, testing them with weight, and then fix the sections that are the weakest. The more you do this, the better your bridge. Don't just do one design, you'll want to try many.

    That being said, you can still have a look around for some basic bridge designs. Read through these sites:

    They give some basic principles for strong bridges, which you can apply to your bridge.

    Good luck!
