"World's Highest Bridge" Opens in China Over 1,850-Foot Gorge

Posted by Anup Baral Dec 31, 2016 :
A bridge suspended above a Chinese river by more than half a kilometre has now opened to the public – becoming the highest of its kind in the world. The Beipanjiang Bridge is raised 564 metres above the Beipan River in mountainous southwest China, making it the highest bridge ever built. Designed by a team of Chinese engineers, the bridge has a 1,341-metre span that carries four lanes of traffic over the Beipan River. It connects the provinces of Guizhou and Yunnan, and is expected to reduce journey time between the cities of Liupanshui and Xuianwei from five hours to just two.
