The Anzahaite Long-Span Suspension Bridge in Jishou, Hunan Province, China, officially opened to traffic on 3rd April 2012. It is the world’s longest and highest suspension bridge, measuring 1176 metres long and 336 metres above the valley floor (or 1102ft up and long).
Construction has taken nearly five years, with most of the work finished by the end of 2011. It was built to ease traffic congestion in the area, caused mainly by its numerous narrow, steep roads. Pedestrians can walk along it on a special walkway and enjoy views of the Dehang Canyon.
