The Fourth Nanjing Yangtze Bridge is a suspension bridge over the Yangtze River in Nanjing, China.[2] The bridge is the sixth longest span in the world and the third largest in China.[3][4]

Jiangsu province's first suspension bridge, it lies 10 km downstream of the second Yangtze River Bridge. The bridge connects Hengliang town, a section of Nanjing Raoyue, Nanjing-Nantong Highway, Hongguang village, towns like Long Pao, Xianling and Qilin in Jiangning District, and a section of Raoyue and Shanghai-Nanjing Highway.[5]

The 4th Nanjing Yangtze twin-tower bridge fashioned after standard expressway, boasts dual six-lane carriageway designed to maintain a 100–125 km an hour traffic.[6]
