YALU RIVER BRIDGE
Yalu River Bridge
The new Yalu River Bridge is a road-bridge connecting Dandong city in the Liaoning Province of China with Sinuiju in North Korea. This 3Kms long cable-supported bridge was meant as a replacement for the old Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge which was built by the Japanese Imperial Army in 1937. The old bridge was connected by road and rail to the Korean border in the past. The new bridge was built in 2011 and is connected with Xingdan Road in China. But as the Korean government has not linked any major road routes to the new bridge at their end, the Chinese government has put up a barricade to protect visitors from inadvertently going across.
