World’s longest suspension bridge opens

The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge has been opened in northern Portugal.

The bridge is located inside the Unesco-recognised Arouca Geopark. The dimensions of the bridge are huge. It is 516 metres long and hangs 175 metres above the fast-flowing River Paiva.

Residents of the nearby town hope the tourist attraction will help revive a region whose economy was devastated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The bridge took around two years to build.

This bridge breaks the record for the longest suspension bridge which was held since 2017 by the Charles Kuonen Bridge at Randa, in the Swiss Alps.
