Jiangsu province has a new bridge. The Sutong Bridge is the world's longest span cable-stayed bridge.

The 32 kilometer span was opened today and crosses the Chengong watercourse of the Yangtze River. It lies between Nantong City and Changshu.

The all-China project is a six-lane expressway designed for maximum speeds of 100 kilometers per hour. The bridge will cut travel times from Shanghai to Nantong from four hours to one hour. The bridge also has world's highest bridge tower.
