The highest bridge in the Middle East for over 30 years, the Ghatoor or Ghotour Railway Bridge is a large steel arch bridge in Iran’s West Azarbaijan Province. Constructed in 1970 and designed by the American Bridge Company, the main arch spans 732 feet (223 mtrs) as it carries a rail line 390 feet (119 mtrs) above an arid, rocky river gorge. A highline was constructed across the canyon with one end terminating directly into the side of the mountain and a fixed tower at the other end. Tiebacks held the two halves of the arch over the gorge until closure at the crown. The truss-arch is similar to the original Burro Creek bridge in the U.S. state of Arizona which was also designed in the 1960s by the American Bridge Company.
