The upcoming world’s highest Beipanjiang bridge in Guizhou, China is nearing its completion as engineers are on the verge of completing the basic structure of the bridge.
The Beipanjiang bridge stands at a height of 1854 feet among the mountains in southwestern China. On completion, it will overtake the Si Du River Bridge in Hubei province which currently is the world’s highest operational bridge.
The Beipanjiang bridge with a span of 1341 metres is expected to be open to public by the end of 2016 and will drastically reduce the time taken to travel from Liupanshui in Guizhou to Xuanwei in Yunnan by almost 3 hours. Earlier, the time taken to travel between these two provinces was five hours and after the bridge is operational, the journey will take less than two hours to complete.
