An enormous mountain overpass standing at a whopping 565 metres high (1,854 feet) opened to traffic Thursday, 29th December, 2016 in south-west China.

The Beipanjiang Bridge, which reportedly cost 1.023 billion yuan (£120 million) to build, overtook the 560-metre-high (1,837 feet) Sidu River Bridge, also in China, to become the highest bridge in the world, according to People’s Daily Online.

At 1,340 metres (4,396 feet) long, the four-lane structure links two of China most remote provinces, Yunnan and Guizhou.
