The opening ceremony of the Middle East’s biggest suspension bridge located in Meshkin-Shahr City in Ardabil Province was held on Saturday attended by Head of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization Masoud Soltanifar .

The Meshkin Shahr’s bridge is being constructed on the Khiavchai River with 345 meters long, 3 meters wide and 80 meters above the valley floor.

The construction of the bridge was resumed recently after a six-year break.

The cost of the project has been estimated at $ 40 million.

Local officials argue that this unique bridge not only promotes tourism industry in the Ardebil Province, but also increases the number of foreign tourists to the country.

A tourist town with facilities such as hotels, spa pools, a variety of tracks such as skiing, horseback riding, chariot racing and cycling and other ancillary facilities is scheduled to be built next to the bridge.
