This news is about a new bridge in China. It connects two Chinese provinces and it is the tallest suspension bridge in the world. It is 565 metres above the ground.

People are set to open the bridge to traffic before the end of the year. The bridge will cut driving times between the two provinces from 4 hours to just one.

The bridge will add to the collection of high bridges in the area. There are more structures like this in the Chinese province than in the whole world.
