The Jiujiang Bridge is a combined road and rail bridge which over the Yangtze River near the city of Jiujiang. It links Xunyang District of Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province south of the river with Xiaochi Town (Huangmei County, Hubei Province) to the north. The central section of the bridge uses the combined action of arch and truss bridges and has a main span of 216 meters (709 ft) and two side spans of 180 meters (590 ft). The double deck bridge carries four vehicular lanes and two sidewalks on the top deck and two railway tracks on the bottom deck.

Cracks have appeared in the bridge and traffic weighting more than 20 tonnes was prohibited from using the bridge.[1]
