The world’s longest suspension bridge, 526 meters long, has been opened across the Lianjiang River in the Chinese province of Guangdong.
This was reported by the press service of the Guinness Book of Records.
The bridge was built at a height of 201 meters above the river, it can accommodate 500 people at a time, writes Public.
Its glass consists of three layers with a total thickness of 4.5 centimeters. It was made so that visitors could see what was happening under their feet.
The bridge has steel railings 8.8 meters wide. Also in some places the city is getting wider to form conditional viewing platforms for photos.
The designers of the bridge wanted the bridge not to stand out against the background of nature, so they made it quite minimalist.
Previously, the longest suspension glass bridge was also in China, 488 meters long. It was opened in 2017 in Hebei Province.
In general, the longest bridge in the world is considered to be the Danyang–Kunshan Viaduct. Its length is 164 kilometers.
