China is also home to the second and third highest bridges – the Sidu River Bridge and the Puli Bridge, respectively

Guizhou province in southwest China is already home to seven of the 10 highest bridges in the country. And the Beipanjiang Bidge, now the world’s highest, has just opened to traffic. Clearly with a good head for heights, CCTV’s Liu Yang visited this latest example of how Chinese engineering now ranks among the best in the world.

Another architectural marvel to add to the country which already has more than its fair share of construction wonders. Situated in rugged mountains and gorges, the 1,341-meter (4,399.60 ft)-long structure, soars 565 meters (1,853.67 ft) above the Baipanjiang Valley.

Equivalent to a 200-storey building, Beipanjiang has just overtaken the Sidu River Bridge in Hubei province to become the world’s highest.
