The world’s longest suspension bridge with a length of 500 meters is being constructed in Aznav tourist area in Khalkhal city, northwestern province of Ardebil, which is famous for its mountains, springs, and gardens.

According to the provincial Tourism Chief Nader Fallahi, the world’s longest suspension bridge with a length of 500 meters will come on stream in June 2021, “considering Meshginshahr suspension bridge and Hir curved glass suspension bridge as popular tourist attractions, Ardebil can be named the province of suspension bridges.”

Meshginshahr suspension bridge is 345 meters long, 3 meters wide and 80 meters high. It was inaugurated in 2015 and is said to be the largest of its kind in West Asia, Tehran Times reports.

Inaugurated in January, Hir curved glass suspension bridge is the first of its kind in the world. Measuring 220 meters in length, the bridge’s all-glass parts and metal cables have been constructed by domestic engineers using high-quality materials.

The official also said that three ski resorts in Owjur of the Sareyn county, Shabil in Meshgin Shahr, and Alvaresi in Sareyn county will be launched by the Iranian calendar year 1400 (starts March 20, 2021).
