At 1,102 feet up and 3,858 feet across, the ambitious suspension bridge
in China's Hunan province has become the highest and longest in the
world. The bridge, which is
lit up at night with 1,888 lights, is the fourth suspension bridge to
cross a valley so wide it seems to be connecting two mountain ranges. It is a key part of the Jishou-Chadong
Expressway, a 64-km road which has 18 different tunnels that cover about
half of its length. Once on the bridge cars and lorries can motor along
a two-way, four-lane motorway at about 50 mph.
