2012 has begun with a great record when Guiness Book awarded Baluarte Suspension Bridge as the highest bridge in the world. Baluarte bridge is not only the highest bridge in the world, but also a very long one, measuring about 1 km. If you have air-sick, then you might experience some diziness symptoms because the highest bridge in the world is 400 m and it can even cover Eiffel Tower in its central part. The highest bridge in the world is situated in the deep mountains of Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental and the constructors have managed to finish building this bridge in oly 4 years!
Baluarte Suspension Bridge is now a communication path for Mexicans because it links Mazatlan on the Pacific Coast with Durango in the interior. The bridge was built on the occasion of the 200 years of independence from Spain. However, Mexico won’t stop here because other eight over 300 m high bridges and 60 tunnels are planned for building in the near future. Because Baluarte Suspension Bridge surpasses famous Millau Viaduct in France it is considered the highest cable-stayed bridge in the world.
