China – The longest fully glass bridge opened in China in mid-July. The new bridge in the Huangchuan Three Gorges Scenic Area in Lianzhou, southern China, is being reported as the longest glass bridge in the world. It’s 526 metres (1,726 feet) long and wide enough for cars to drive across.

It took three years and cost 300 million yuan ($43 million) to build, according to the South China Morning Post. Watch the video of the unveiling, with Guinness World Record reps in attendance, below.
