Wufengshan Yangtze River Bridge finishes integrated commissioning and testing
The world’s first high-speed rail suspension bridge—Wufengshan Yangtze River Bridge finished integrated commissioning and testing on Oct. 29, 2020 in east China’s Jiangsu Province, meaning the Huai’an-Yangzhou-Zhenjiang high-speed rail section has now entered the trial run phase.
As a vital part of the rail line, the bridge has a length of 6.4km and a span of 1,092m. Its upper level designated for vehicles has eight tracks with a maximum speed of 100 km/h, and the lower level has four railway lines with a designated speed of 250 km/h. The CCCC mainly undertook construction of the north tower, anchorage and the bridge approach. After becoming operational, the line will slash the travel time between Lianyungang and Shanghai from 11 to 3 hours and further improve the regional traffic system.
