The world’s highest bridge has opened to traffic in a remote, mountainous part of China, adding to the country’s impressive roster of megastructures.

Jembatan tersebut memiliki tinggi 565 meter dari tanah. Jembatan itu pun sekaligus menjadi jembatan tertinggi di dunia seperti diberitakan The Guardian.

Jembatan yang memiliki nama Beipanjiang itu pun menghubungkan dua provinsi terpencil di China, yakni Yunan dan Guizhou. Nama jembatan itu pun terinspirasi dari Sungai Beipan yang mengalir di bawahnya.

And is expected to reduce road travel times from Liupanshui to Xuianwei from five hours to two. Its 1,341-metre span of four-lane road deck soars 564 metres over the Beipan River, making it the highest – if not the tallest – in the world.

China is also home to the second and third highest bridges – the Sidu River Bridge and the Puli Bridge, respectively – as well as other modern wonders such as the Three Gorges Dam (and its ship lift, the world’s largest) and growing high speed rail network.

The Guangzhao Dam is a concrete gravity dam a few miles north of the Beipanjiang Bridge, designed to generate electricity using hydroelectric power generation.

The Beipanjiang is the highest rather than the tallest bridge. The tallest bridge – the bridge with the tallest structure, regardless of distance from the valley floor – remains the Millau Viaduct, a joint British-French venture on the A75 Autoroute. The road deck here is held a mere 270 metres – less than half the height of the Beipanjiang Bridge.

The Beipan river, over which the Beipanjiang Bridge carries traffic, is part of the great Pearl River basin. Because of its geography, the bridges that cross it tend to be remarkably high.
