A bridge suspended over a Chinese River by more than half a kilometer has now opened to general society – turning into the most tallest of its kind on the planet.
The Beipanjiang Bridge is raised 564 meters over the Beipan River in mountainous southwest China, making it the most elevated bridge ever created.
Created by a group of Chinese engineers, the bridge has a 1,341-meter traverse that conveys four paths of movement over the Beipan River.
It associates the regions of Guizhou and Yunnan, and is relied upon to lessen travel time between the urban areas of Liupanshui and Xuianwei from five hours to only two.
Before now the world's most elevated bridge was the Sidu River Bridge, additionally in China, situated 500 meters over a stream.
However, the Beipanjiang Bridge is not the tallest bridge on the globe – that title still has a place with the Millau Viaduct by Foster + Partners, which is 245 meters, yet with a deck raised up from the ground by just 270 meters.
China is likewise home to a few other record-breaking bridges. The world's tallest and longest glass bridge opened in the country not long ago, while the world's longest ocean bridge finished there in 2011.
Different examples of great bridges in China incorporate the undulating red Lucky Knot Bridge, finished by NEXT Architects in October this year.
