Glass bridges are becoming increasingly popular in mountain resorts in China as a way to attract tourists in search of novelty and adventure. By the end of 2016, at least 60 glass bridges will be under construction across the country, according to the Earth Journal published by the Geological Museum of China.
The most famous of the glass bridges is at the tourist site Zhangjiajie in Hunan, where a bridge 430 meters long and 6 meters wide is suspended 300 meters from the ground between two hills.
In 2018, the province of Hebei in northern China introduced technical standards for glass bridges and sidewalks, providing guidelines for materials, location, design and construction. For example, glass bridges should not be built in areas with high seismic activity and should be closed during bad weather and natural disasters, and the number of pedestrians on these bridges and sidewalks should not exceed three per square meter.
Bean Mountain Resort is closed. Longjing City Hall conducts security checks at all tourist sites. Police are also investigating the case.
