Yangtze River bridges and tunnels

The Wushan Yangtze River Bridge in the three gorges area of Chongqing.

The bridges and tunnels across the Yangtze River provide important means of transportation across China's longest and largest river. They form a vital part of the country's road and rail network. With the "Long River" bisecting China proper from west to east, virtually every major north-south bound highway or railway must cross the Yangtze. Until the completion of the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge in 1957, there were no crossings across the main stretch of the Yangtze from Yibin to the river mouth in Shanghai, a distance of 2,884 kilometres (1,792 mi). Since then, there have been 60 bridges and three tunnels built, the overwhelming majority constructed since 1990. They reflect a broad array of bridge designs and, in many cases, represent significant achievements in modern bridge engineering. Several rank among the world's longest suspension, cable-stayed and arch bridges as well as some of the highest and tallest bridges.

History[edit]

The Yangtze River forms a major geographic barrier dividing northern and southern China. For millennia, travelers crossed the Yangtze by ferry. In the first half of the 20th century, rail passengers from Beijing to Guangzhou and Shanghai had to disembark, respectively, at Hanyang and Pukou, and cross the river by steam ferry before resuming journeys by train. After the founding of the People's Republic in 1949, the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, a dual-use road-rail bridge, was built with Soviet assistance from 1955 to 1957. The second bridge across the river was a single-track railway bridge built upstream in Chongqing in 1959. The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge, also a road-rail bridge, was the first bridge to cross the lower reaches of the Yangtze, in Nanjing. It was built after the Sino-Soviet split, from 1960 to 1968, and did not receive foreign assistance. The Zhicheng Road-Rail Bridge followed in 1971 and then the Chongqing Road Bridge in 1980. Bridge-building slowed in the 1980s before resuming in the 1990s and accelerating in the first decade of the 21st century. The Jiujiang Yangtze River Bridge was built in 1992 as part of the Beijing–Jiujiang Railway. A second bridge in Wuhan was completed in 1995.

By 2005, there were over 50 bridges and one tunnel across the Yangtze River between Yibin and Shanghai. These include some of the longest suspension and cable-stayed bridges in the world on the Yangtze Delta: Jiangyin Suspension Bridge (1385m, opened in 1999), Runyang Bridge (1490m, opened 2005), Sutong Bridge (1088m, opened 2008). The rapid pace of bridge construction has continued. The city of Wuhan now has seven bridges and one tunnel across the Yangtze. About a dozen other bridges are now under construction.

In the upper reaches of the Yangtze above Yibin, the Jinsha (Gold Sands), Tongtian, and Tuotuo sections of the river are narrower and bridges are more numerous.
