Beipanjiang Bridge, world’s highest bridge, connecting two provinces in the mountainous southwest of China has now opened to traffic. This helped to reduce travel time by as much as three-quarters. The Bridge, which soars 565 metres (1,854 feet) above a river, connects the two mountainous provinces of Yunnan and Guizhou.
Travel time between Xuanwei in Yunnan to Shuicheng in Guizhou has cut down from more than four hours to around one.
According to local newspaper Guizhou Daily, the 1,341-metre span cost over 1 billion yuan ($144 million) to build.
