Officials said the popularity of the tourist attraction in central Hunan meant urgent improvements were needed
The world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge opened to great fanfare on 22 August. But just 13 days later the structure, which spans a spectacular canyon between two mountain cliffs in central Hunan province, has been forced to close.
Officials told CNN that the popularity of the tourist attraction meant urgent maintenance in the area was needed.
