Watch in the video a Range Rover driving over a bridge made of paper…
The paper bridge in Suzhou, China, nicknamed the ‘Venice of the East,’ created using the arch technique, from 54,390 pieces of paper, supports 2,374 kg.

The paper bridge, designed by environmental artist Steve Messam, was done without the use of glue or bolts and took three days to build:
“Paper structures capable of supporting people have been built before but nothing on this scale has ever been attempted.
It’s pushing engineering boundaries, just like the Range Rover, and the ease and composure with which the vehicle negotiated the arch was genuinely breath-taking.”
