The world's highest bridge, the Beipanjiang Bridge in rural China, has opened to traffic.

The stunning pictures by AFP show the enormous bridge as it spans the Beipan river, with the four-lane motorway sitting 564 metres above the water surface.

The bridge, which is 1,341-metre long, is expected to cut the driving time between Liupanshui to Xuianwei from five hours to just two.
