Would YOU Cross This Bridge?



For some, this is a bridge too far. When video footage and pictures of the structure — called the Ruyi Bridge —emerged on social media, some users said they would never have the courage to set foot on it, while some were so stunned that they declared the bridge — which sits 459ft above a ravine — fake. The bridge, which is 328ft long and spans the Shenxianju valley in Zhejiang province, actually consists of three undulating bridges and part of its deck is made from transparent glass. The bridge was designed by He Yunchang, a steel structure expert who was also involved in the design of Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium for the 2008 Olympics. Since its opening last September, more than 200,000 people have visited the bridge and it has become one of the area's biggest attractions.
