Transparent Bridge in China – Design You Trust — Design Daily Since 2007

Transparent Bridge in China


If you thought the glass cliff pathway was terrifying, wait until you see this.


Chinese engineers have now come up with a glass suspension bridge that sits 180 metres above the ground in Pingjiang county, in the province of Hunan, southern China.


The structure stretches 300 metres between two rocky peaks but is different from the cliffside bridge in Baoding, Hebei province, in that it actually moves when the wind blows.


If anyone gets paralysed by fear then specially trained staff go along to encourage them to finish the journey.
