China’s first road-rail suspension bridge undergoes integrated commissioning and testing
China’s first road-rail suspension bridge, the world’s first high-speed rail suspension bridge—Wufengshan Yangtze River Bridge in east China’s Jiangsu Province, is undergoing integrated commissioning and testing, marking the countdown to the opening of the bridge.
With a length of 6.4km and a span of 1,092m, the structure partly built by the CCCC is a vital part of the Lianyungang-Zhenjiang High-speed Railway. The upper level designated for vehicles has eight tracks with a maximum speed of 100 km/h, and the lower level has four rail lines (two lines are reserved) with a designated speed of 250 km/h. Construction of the bridge has set many world records. Its north anchorage weighs over 1.3 million tons, equivalent to 186 Eiffel Towers.
