The Yangbaoshan bridge in Guiding County of southwest China's Guizhou Province carried out a static load test, according to The Xinhua News Agency reports.

Forty-eight large trucks with a total of 1,680 tonnes of goods were parked on the bridge to test the construction quality and mechanical properties of the bridge structure.
