Dashan Railway Bridge is one of two large bridges on the upgrade of the older Guiyang, Guizhou to Liuzhou, Guangxi Railway line. The long viaduct has piers as high as 78 meters supporting a maximum beam span of 64 meters. Just to the south is the equally spectacular Xiawangxiang Railway Bridge which has a larger main span of 88 meters. Both bridges can easily be seen from local route 210.

This "Tin Road" from Guiyang to Nandan, Guangxi parallels the State Road 210 with a series of new tunnels and bridges that have made the Guizhou-Guanxi Railway just 489 kilometers long or 119 kilometers shorter then the original line of 608 kilometers. The upgraded route is a grade I electrified single line, reserved for double track in the future. A Liuzhou to Guiyang passenger train that once took 14 hours has now been shortened to five hours.
