World’s Tallest Bridge – level 3

14-09-2016 15:00

A suspension bridge in China is set to be the tallest in the world. It towers 565 metres above the valley floor.

The Beipanjiang Bridge connects China’s Guizhou and Yunnan provinces. It will cut driving times between the two from 4 hours down to just one.

The bridge is set to open to traffic before the end of the year. It will add to the collection of high bridges in the area as Guizhou province is home to more of these structures than every other country on earth combined.

Difficult words: suspension bridge (a bridge in which the weight of the deck is supported by cables), tower (rise to a great height).
