world largest glass bridge

World’s longest and highest glass bridge.



The World’s longest and highest glass bridge would open to visitors on Saturday in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, central China, officials have said.


The 430-meter long, six-meter wide bridge, paved with 99 panes of three-layer transparent glasses, hangs between two steep cliffs 300 meters above the ground.


The management committee of the bridge said in a statement on Wednesday in Changsha (China) that the bridge had set 10 world records, spanning its design and construction.


The committee said that a maximum of 8,000 visitors were allowed to cross the bridge daily and that a reservation must be made a day prior to visiting.


“Construction was completed in December; In July, a two-tonne truck was driven across in a show of the bridge’s sturdiness,’’ it said.
