An aerial photo of a winding road in Central China has been widely circulated online, with the number of tight bends amazing viewers.

The wonder road, stretching 36 kilometers with 10 hairpin curves, is part of an artery which links Baiyangping, a township in Hubei province, to Fengjie county, in the Chongqing municipality.

In 2015, a 100 million yuan upgrade of the zigzag road began with an aim to improve safety.

The narrow bends had become a major bottleneck and hindered local development.

The improvement is expected to be completed in July this year.
