Video | Watch the moment a Range Rover drives over a paper bridge

To mark the 45th anniversary of the Range Rover, the car manufacturer commissioned artist Steve Messam to design a paper bridge for the vehicle to drive over.

The 5m bridge had no glue or bolts and was free-standing. The experiment took place in Suzhou, China, and the bridge took three days to construct.

Messam said: “Paper structures capable of supporting people have been built before but nothing on this scale has ever been attempted. It’s pushing engineering boundaries.”
