Engineers in China have connected the two sides of the world’s highest cable-bridge.

The Beipanjiang Bridge joins southwest China’s Yunnan and Guizhou provinces.

The last-but-one bridge deck was put in place on Saturday morning.

The final piece is being put in place on Saturday afternoon.

The bridge stretches across the Nizhu river Gorge and is 565 metres above the river bed.

Engineers only have an allowance of five millimetres to play with during the construction.

The bridge will be operational by the end of this year.
