Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge


Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge is the first highway-railway bridge over the Yangtze River.
The bridge, built in 1955, with the help of the Soviet experts, made the wish of "turning a deep chasm into a thoroughfare" come true.

Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge is 1670.4 meters (5480.3 feet) long with the main body of 1156 meters (3,793feet). It has 8 piers and 9 holes. The bridge is divided into two levels with the upper one for bus transit and the lower for trains.

From the bridge, you can see the rolling water run to the east with ships coming and going. On the bank, Hubei TV Tower stands tall on Tortoise Hill in Hanyang and the Yellow Crane Tower stands on Snake Hill in Wuchang.

In the past 30 years, the Wuhan Bridge Bureau of the Railway Ministry has built other ten bridges over the Yangtze River in Nanjing, Chongqing, Zhijiang and Jiujiang. But the first Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge is still the largest and most comprehensive.
