World’s longest suspension bridge opens in SwitzerlandStaff Writer | August 1, 2017
At 494m long, the new suspension bridge that opened near Randa in the canton of Valais is the longest in the world.
Technology Locals campaigned for a replacement
It replaces a former suspension bridge that was closed in 2010 shortly after it was opened, due to the danger of falling rocks.
Locals campaigned for a replacement, and the approximate 750,000 franc cost was sought from private investors.
Named after its main sponsor, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge was built in just ten weeks by Swiss firm Swissrope. ■
