Workers are finishing the construction of a glass cantilever bridge in the Longgang scenic area of Yunyang, Chongqing. The structure’s cantilever (that horseshoe-shaped part hanging over the cliff) extends 26.68 meters from the edge, making it five meters longer than the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk—because China’s see-through walkways must always be the biggest and therefore most terrifying.
The transparent bridge is situated around 718 meters above ground (while we’re making comparisons, the Grand Canyon Skywalk is suspended over 1,200 meters above the canyon’s floor). The 35 million yuan project started in March 2014 and is expected to open in May this year.
