The world’s highest bridge

SiDuHe suspension bridge is the highest bridge in the world (drop).


The first film shows SiDuHe bridge. While the Royal Gorge Bridge in America is a mighty 291 m (955 feet) high, the distance from the bridge to the bottom of the steep gorge at SiDeHu is a whopping 472 m (1,549 ft)! It is 1.2 km long (the central span is 900m) and opened at the end of 2009. It lies on the route from Shanghai to ChengDu in HuBei province.


The next two films show the LongTanHe Viaduct (also in HuBei province). This only just makes the top 40 highest bridges but as you will see from the videos, its almost 200m height is still most impressive; and another engineering marvel.
