1,312 feet! World's highest cable-stayed bridge built in Mexico

The world's highest cable-stayed bridge has been constructed in Mexico. The Baluarte Bridge is 1,124 meters (3,687 feet) long and hangs at over 400 meters (1,312 feet) high, according to Reuters.

The BBC reports that the Eiffel Tower would easily fit under its central span, and that the engineering feat has been recognised by officials from the Guinness World of Records.
