Stunning aerial view of bridge with highest concrete tower

Around China

Pingtang Bridge in southwest China's Guizhou Province has the highest concrete bridge tower in the world. The tower is 332 meters high, as tall as a 110-floor building. The bridge, a colossal cable-supported viaduct that spans 2,135 meters across a canyon, serves as a major connection on the Pingtang-Luodian Expressway. Since the bridge opened to traffic in Dec. 2019, it has reduced the travel time between Pingtang and Luodian from over two and a half hours to about one hour.
