When construction ends in 2019, the Chenab River in India will be spanned by the world’s highest railway bridge. The arch-shaped structure will use over 24,000 metric tons of steel and rise 359 meters above the river bed. Steel was chosen for the project because it is able to resist temperatures of -20°C and withstand wind speeds of over 250 km per hour. Learn more about the bridge here.
