The Beipanjiang Bridge has now opened to traffic and it is the tallest bridge ever build. This impressive construction is suspended above the Beipan River in mountainous southwest China raising 564 metres above water level. 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.
