World’s highest bridge opens in southwest China

China has it again with the opening of another mega-infrastructure achievement, the Beipanjiang Bridge.

The world’s highest bridge, rising nearly 570 meters above a valley, has opened in southwest China on Thursday.

The Guizhou Transport Authority said with a height equivalent to a 200-storey building, the Beipanjiang Bridge linking southwest China’s Yunnan and Guizhou provinces is the highest in the world by the vertical distance from the bridge deck down to the ground or water surface beneath the bridge span.

The conclusion is made based on public data of high bridges that have been completed across the globe.

The structure, spanning the Beipanjiang Valley, is part of a highway linking Hangzhou City in east China’s Zhejiang province and Ruili City in Yunnan.

The construction of the 1,341-meter-long cable-stayed suspension bridge started construction in 2013, costing about 1 billion yuan or about 150 million US dollars.

The construction of the main span of the bridge was completed in early September this year. — Ninya Armillo | UNTV News & Rescue
