Hubei: Hometown of Chinese pears to bid farewell to one thousand years of solitude
Bailizhou, the largest river island in the Yangtze River located in Zhijiang City, Hubei Province, boasts flat terrain and fertile land, abundant in grain and fruits. However, for many years, the residents here have suffered from inconvenient transportation due to its unique geographical location surrounded by water, which has long hindered the economic and social development of the island.
Chinese pears in Bailizhou
struction of two bridges on the Dangyan -Zhijiang-Songzi Expressway by CCCC's Second Highway Engineering will completely transform the history of Bailizhou as an isolated island and fulfill the dream of over 100,000 people living in Bailizhou for a bridge.
The main span of the bridge is 890 meters, featuring a six-lane highway with a designed speed of 120 kilometers per hour.
The main span of Songzi River Bridge is 555 meters, a composite steel–concrete cable-stayed bridge with two towers.
The completion of these two bridges will bring new development opportunities to Bailizhou. It will become an ecological oasis that emphasizes modern agriculture, healthcare industry, and leisure tourism, shining as a beautiful and vibrant gem in the heart of the Yangtze River.
