Revealed: Satellite images show progress on new Yalu bridge

First satellite imagery made public to show new bridge development between China and North Korea

WASHINGTON D.C. – The new Yalu/Amnok River Bridge, launched at the end of 2010, is for the first time visible on Google Earth in a March 27, 2013 satellite image. Built entirely with Chinese support, when completed the new bridge will span nearly 1.5 kilometers linking south-western Dandong with Sinuiju, North Phyongan Province.
