World’s Highest Suspension Bridge Opens 1,500 Foot Above A Glacier In The Swiss Alps
The world’s highest suspension bridge has opened, and it takes a brave soul to venture across it, as the pedestrian walkway is suspended 1,500 feet above a glacier in the Swiss Alps, pinning it 9,000 feet above sea level.
Engineers have spent the past five months building and developing the Titlis Cliff Walk, a structure that cost £1 million.
The world’s highest suspension bridge is 330 feet long, but only 3 feet wide, which is sure to set some stomachs turning.
With snow storms common place, the visibility can be reduced to nearly zero on the bridge, adding to the effect.
Construction work was an extreme challenge for engineers, with working hours determined by the weather conditions.
“Everyone was very impressed by the bridge,” said Peter Reinle, of Titlis Cable Cars.
“It opened in a real snow storm which made it an adventure for everyone who crossed it.”
Are you brave enough to cross the world’s highest suspension bridge?
