Extreme Construction

Thousands of metres up the vertiginous slopes of Shifou Mountain in Hunan Province, China, a team of workers, operating with hardly any safety measures, are building a footpath.

The plank road, once it is finished, will stretch for 3km (9843 ft) and be China’s longest sightseeing footpath.

48-year-old Yu Ji is one of the workers and he has been working on high cliffs building such plank roads for more than 10 years. He comments: “Young people don’t want this job, as it requires them to stay deep in the mountains for months or even years.”

Yu Ji takes charge of the most dangerous part of the project – drilling the holes to set up pipes to support the footpath.
