Most Unique Bridges In The World
Siduhe Bridge China
Opening in 2009, the Siduhe bridge is officially the worlds highest bridge and probably the scariest for those who have a fear of heights It is located an incredible 1,627 ft above ground to achieve this record. To get a scale of how high up this bridge is, it is higher than the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel tower, the Pyramids of Giza and the Big Ben. It sits quietly high above a river gorge in China s Hubei Province surrounded by China s mountains and greenery. Building this bridge was a challenge because of it s location. It wasn t possible to use cranes, boats or even get helicopters up there so the engineers came up with the interesting idea of using rockets instead. Over 1000 meters of tether was attached to the end of a rocket and shot all the way across the gorge to help set up foundations. It s unique location and unique way of construction show that this bridge will probably remain the world s highest bridge for years to come.
