The Baling River Bridge, due to be completed in early 2010, is one of China’s longest suspension bridges. Measuring 1.4 miles (2.25km) the project is a marvel of Chinese engineering that looks wholly out of place among rural Guizhou provinces farms and rice fields. The Baling River Bridge, soaring a quarter of a mile (400m) above the Baling River, is an example of large-scale infrastructure projects that are being built throughout China in an effort to modernize China’s vast western hinterland.
