One of the highest cable stayed bridges in the world, the Guozigou may also be the most remote large sized cable stayed span in the world. Located in China’s largest and most northwesterly province of Xinjiang, the 4-lane structure consists of two extremely tall H-frame ladder towers 707 feet (215.5 mtrs) and 687 feet (209.5 mtrs). The crossing is the largest structure on the remote G30 Lianhuo Expressway.
Also impressive is the Guozigou Approach Bridge that is located just north of the Guozigou Bridge and begins the giant spiral descent into the river valley.
