Hidden behind a mountain that separates it from the huge Aizhai suspension bridge, this prestressed beam bridge is quite a structure in its own right as it carries a 4-lane highway across a deep ravine and into the Aizhai suspension bridge tunnel.


隐藏在雄伟的矮寨悬索桥背后的大山中的这座梁桥,是一座预应力梁式结构,也具有其结构上的特别之处,因为它的四车道桥面跨立在深谷之上,并通过隧道与矮寨悬索桥直接相连。

The highway has one of the most beautifully designed concrete railings I have ever seen in China. Hopefully this tradition will continue on new highways throughout the country. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com
