The Dazi Bridge is a one-lane suspension bridge in Dagzê, Tibet. At the time of its completion in 1984, it was the longest spanning bridge in China with a main span of 500 m (1,600 ft).[1] Many longer bridges have since been built. The bridge crosses the Lhasa River 30 km (98,000 ft) east of Lhasa.

Structure[edit]

The bridge is a gravity-anchored suspension bridge with deck trussing. It carries one lane of traffic measuring only 4.5 m (15 ft) wide.
