Pingtang Bridge, constructed in a mountainous area of Guizhou province, won the IABSE Award for Infrastructure at the Outstanding Structure Award ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland on Nov 17.

It was organized by the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering. This is the third time the Pingtang Bridge won international awards, after winning the 2021 FIDIC Excellence Award and the 38th Gustavs Lindesar Prize in 2020——the "Nobel Prize" in bridge building.

In 1998, the IABSE Award for Infrastructure was set up to honor bridges or structural engineering projects which represent technological and engineering innovations for bridges and structures around the world.

Seven projects from China have won this award since its establishment.
