The Beipanjiang Bridge Duge is a truly audacious and forward-looking architectural project that, once completed, is set to take the title of the world's highest bridge.

Located at a height of 565 meters over the Nizhu River Canyon in Guizhou, China, this record-breaking bridge is situated in the same valley as the Guanxing Highway Bridge, which held the accolade of world's highest bridge in the early 2000s.

The Beipanjiang Bridge Duge is far more than just a record-setting novelty project however, as it is set to play a crucial role in reducing the travel time between different cities in the region, although the fact that it will be the world's highest bridge certainly speaks to the architectural prowess of China's engineers.
