【看英文中國郵報學英文】太魯閣峽谷景色壯闊,橫跨立霧溪的「山月吊橋」串連布洛灣、巴達岡與燕子口,設置750公尺無障礙步道及週邊設施,預計2020年下半年開放,成為台灣深跨比最高的峽谷吊橋。

The Mountain-Moon Bridge, crossing the Liwu River at the Taroko National Park, is set to open to the public in the second half of the year, according to the Construction and Planning Agency. 

The suspension bridge will connect the surrounding attractions, such as Buluowan, Badagang and Swallow Grotto Trail, to other tourist highlights at Taroko National Park

歷經2年9個月於2019年5月完工的山月吊橋,地勢險峻,施工不易,且吊橋採用高架棧道,減低生態破壞,榮獲「第19屆公共工程金質獎」。

After two years and nine months of construction, the 196-meter long bridge was reportedly completed in May 2019. 

山月吊橋最早建於日治時期,是太魯閣峽谷最長的鐵線橋,後因「產金道路」開路炸山而損毀拆除。

Under the Japanese rule era, the old Mountain-Moon bridge used to be the longest iron-wired bridge at Taroko gorge. However, it was demolished in 1940-41. 

管理處仍在進行遊客管制引導、無障礙服務設施工程。
