World’s Highest Bridge Unveiled in Mexico

Mexican President Felipe Calderon opened the tallest suspension bridge in the world, Baluarte Bridge, on Thursday. The bridge, which connects the north-western Mexican state of Sinaloa with Durango and Mazatlan, has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest suspension bridge in the world. The cable-supported bridge can easily fit the Eiffel Tower under its middle part.

Nearly 86 percent of the project is complete. The entire stretch will become operational by the end of January 2012.
