World’s longest and tallest glass bridge is reopened!The world's longest and highest glass bridge in China's Hunan province has been reopened for public after clearing a security inspection, officials said on Oct 2nd.
  • With a capacity to hold 10,000 people a day, the glass bridge saw a trial operation in late August this year, but was closed 12 days later due to "overwhelming demand".
  • Glass bridge was not closed for safety reasons as rumours had suggested.
  • It cleared security inspection and its construction was up to standard, the official statement said.
  • According to some reports, some deficiencies of the soft and hard facilities seen during the trial period was the main reason behind its closure.
  • The 430-meter-long structure is believed to be the world's longest and tallest glass pedestrian bridge offering a 360 degree view of the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon.
  • During its trial operation, the bridge held no more than 800 people at a time. Each day, 8,000 visitors had the opportunity to walk on it.
