The CCCC-built Fenghuang Road Yellow River Bridge—the world's longest-span and widest three-tower self-anchored suspension bridge was opened to traffic in Jinan, east China's Shandong Province on January 18. With a width of 61.7 meters, it is the widest bridge above the Yellow River.

As the 15th cross-river passage in Jinan, it has a total length of 3,788 meters, with its main bridge stretching 1,332 meters, and two main spans of 428 meters. Construction of the bridge used 114,000 tons of steel, equivalent to 2.7 times the amount that was used for the Bird’s Nest. The steel consumption of the three steel towers alone is equivalent to two Eiffel Towers. The bridge is built according to the two-way eight-lane first-grade highway standard, with space reserved for double-track rail traffic in the middle, bicycle lane and passenger lanes on both sides. Its opening will help improve the transportation capacity of the regional road network and promote the economic development of Jinan.
