Zipper Truck – Turns Golden Gate Bridge into a giant zipper!!!

Zipper TruckZipper Truck – Yellow truck turns Golden Gate Bridge into, hopefully, a safer place.

For more than 50 years, a worker had to sit on the back of a truck and slowly drop plastic tubes on the Golden Gate Bridge to set out lanes. To account for commuter traffic, their direction and positioning changed every day which means that an employee had to go through the task every 24 hours. Finally, a piece of a different machinery was introduced that sets the traffic structure up in matter of minutes.

This thing, called the ‘zipper truck’ automatically lays and moves a lane barrier as it drives. The truck, which is supposed to act as a safety barrier, will hopefully reduce the dangers of head-on collisions. Check out how it looks!
