Constructed as two parallel bridges, the south viaduct is approximately 14 meters lower then the north viaduct. Much of the beauty of Hongshiliang Bridge comes from the gentle curve on a radius of 1,200 meters. Located at kilometer 114, the central span configuration is 6×25 +100+180+100 +7×25 meters. The second bridge has a configuration of 8×25 +100+180+100 +5×25 meters.
