Well, the bridge is not operating. China built it and paid for it, now North Korea is asking for China to also pave the roads on DPRK side and build new warehouses. China said no, so the beautiful friendship bridge is not very friendly. Just...More

They stated that’s NK and China Friendship Bridge but only the Chinese side of the bridge is still standing. I do not know why they are not rebuild or take it down. May be they wanted to witness the accuracy of the American bomber.

Beautifully lit a night. It runs parallel to the Broken Bridge war memorial. A slow, old train runs back and forth from N Korea to PRC several times a day.

This is an old poorly maintained bridge linking China and the DPRK. Nothing sets it aside as special other than it is the only entry point for Tourists who are permitted to catch the train to Pyongyang.

The Friendship Bridge, right beside the Broken Bridge, not far from the Great Wall of China, illustrates the best approach to international relations. The Broken Bridge was bombed. The Great Wall was built to keep enemies out. The Friendship Bridge encourages trade and some tourism....More
