The New Yalu River Bridge (Chinese: 新鸭绿江大桥) will be the third bridge over the Yalu River between Dandong, Liaoning Province, China, and Sinuiju, North Korea. It is a cable-stayed bridge, 20 km long including the supporting roads, and its construction began in October 2011.[1][2]

Opening[edit]

The New Yalu River Bridge was originally slated to be opened in October of 2014, but due to delays on the North Korean side the opening has been postponed indefinitely. The bridge reportedly cost China $350 million USD to build.[3]
