Glass bridge over the abyss
The glass bridge was opened to visitors of the national Park of Zhangjiajie, located in China’s Hunan province. The Park is famous for lovers of modern movie — it starred the most beautiful scenes of the film Mr. Cameron’s «Avatar».
The length of the bridge is 430 meters. It stretched for 300 meters altitude over the Grand Canyon.
To prove the durability of glass designs, engineers and bridge builders made a real test drive for multi-ton jeep, which was moving across the bridge in both directions.
After testing the jeep, the bridge was subjected to the «attack» of volunteers banging on it with hammers and batons. During the test, none of the glass panel bridge is not broken.
