Yangtze River Bridge

yangtze river bridgeWuchang and Hanyang are linked by Yangtze River Bridge. It is more than 1100 meters long and 80 meters high.

For many years, it had been a dream to cross the natural moat of the Yangtze River. After the founding of New China, the central government decided to build the Yangtze River Bridge in Wuhan in 1950. Five years later, news came that the construction would soon begin and it became the focus of world attention.

Within two years, the Chinese engineers, technicians and workers, with the help of the Soviet experts, completed a double Deck Bridge for the dual use of automobiles and trains. The wish of " turning a deep chasm into a thoroughfare" was fulfilled.

On October 15, 1957, thousands of people in Wuhan were overexcited. Cheering sound could be heard on and under the bridge. Trains, automobiles and pedestrians safely crossed the bridge.

Many years have passed. The Wuhan Bridge Bureau of the Railway Ministry has built other ten bridges over the Yangtze River in Nanjing, Chongqing, Zhijiang and Jiujiang. Another highway bridge 2.5 kilometers down to "the First Bridge" will be finished and put into use at the beginning of 1995.
