403m high Baluarte Suspension Bridge in Mexico crowned the highest in the world
This is Mexico’s massive Baluarte Suspension Bridge which has just been crowned the highest in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.
The cable-stayed bridge – which goes across a deep ravine in Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental mountains – took four years to build and cost millions of pounds.
It was built as part of the country’s bicentennial celebrations to mark its independence from Spain in 1810.
It forms a huge highway between Mazatlan on the Pacific Coast to Durango in the interior.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon said: "It is a project which is going to unite the people from the north of Mexico like never before."
