Taiwan’s longest suspension bridge nears completion

Taiping Sky Bridge because it is located at an altitude above 1,000 meters from the sea level


TAIPEI (Taiwan News) --Taiwan’s longest suspension bridge is scheduled to complete in June and set to open to public in September.

Called the Taiping Sky Bridge because it is located at an altitude above 1,000 meters from the sea level, with two sides connecting to mountain tops, visitors will be able to walk on a seemingly endless bridge in the mist.

Located in Meishan Township of Chiayi County, the 281 meters long Taiping sky bridge is hailed as the longest suspension bridge in Taiwan, which breaks the record of a 262m-long and 15-story high glass bridge in Pingtung County.

The bridge has a maximum capacity for 500 people.

To maintain the sustainability, the Alishan National Scenic Area Administration plans to charge an admission fee up to NT$150 for visitors who like to cross the bridge after its opening in September.
