This bridge is shared by the trunk lines of two national expressways (i.e. Beijing-Zhuhai and Shanghai-Chengdu Expressways) to stretch over Yangtze River. It is a continuous semi-floating cable-stayed bridge with five holes, double pylons, double cable planes and steel box girder. The bridge surface is provided with two-way six lanes. It is the widest large bridge in China, started in December 1998, completed and opened to traffic in December 2001.
