Dimuhe Bridge
抵母河特大桥
Liupanshui, Guizhou, China
1,181 feet high / 360 meters high
1,765 foot span / 538 meter span
2016


Opened in 2016, the Dimuhe suspension bridge is one of the five highest highway suspension bridges on earth. With a span of just 1,765 feet (538 meters) between towers, the location is essentially a leap between two nearly vertical cliffs. The bridge is one of several high spans on the southern Guizhou section of the new G56 expressway that connects Liupanshui with Bijie to the north and Yunnan Province in the south and west.

The bridge crosses a tributary of the Sancha River about 30 kilometers east of Liupanshui city. The Sancha is a tributary of the great Wujiang River that has more high bridges then any river in the world except for the Beipanjiang. These include the Liuchonghe, Liuguanghe, Jiangjiehe, Wuzuohe and Wujiang Bridges.

Although Dimuhe Bridge is officially 360 meters high, the span crosses over a 20 meter deep reservoir making for a deck to lake surface height of 340 meters when the reservoir is full. The central span is a conventional truss with 4 simple beam span approaches of 45 meters on either side.

Dimuhe River Bridge Elevation


当此桥2016年通车时,是世界第五高的悬索桥。其主跨仅有538米,桥面高却有360米,意味着河两岸几乎是垂直的峭壁。该桥位于G56杭瑞高速公路在贵州省的西南段,东北连接毕节和六盘水,西南通往云南省。

该桥跨越三岔河的支流,位于六盘水市以东大约30公里。三岔河是乌江的支流,仅以三岔河而论,其拥有的高桥就仅次于北盘江位居世界第二。包括三岔河、六冲河、武佐河等等。

尽管抵母河大桥实际高度有360米,此桥下是水深20米以上的水库,到水库水面只有340米高。该桥中跨是钢桁梁,边跨每侧是4*45米混凝土梁。

This record breaking suspension footbridge was constructed for workers to access both sides of the Sancha River gorge. The chicken wire mesh is 290 meters above the old level of the river or 270 meters if measured to the surface of the reservoir. As measured between anchorages, the main span of 510 meters is the second longest Tibet-style footbridge span ever built! Only the Zongxinhe construction footbridge to the north on the same highway is larger with a main span of 540 meters. These two footbridges are the first in history to exceed the main span of the Brooklyn Bridge as well as being the first two footbridges in the world to be higher then 200 meters.
