A suspension bridge consists of the towers or piers over which the main chains or cables pass; the anchorages to which the ends of the cables are attached; the main chains or cables from which the roadway is suspended; the suspending rods or chains which connect the roadway with the cable and the roadway.

The sub-structure consists of the foundations, piers &c. The super-structure consists of the roadway and the chains or cables"--page 1.
