The Tongyang concrete arch bridge carries route S208 across the mighty Jinsha Jiang / Yangtze River with a clear span of 188 meters. The new crossing now allows travel between Zhaoyang County, Yunnan Province and Liangshan County, Sichuan Province.

The bridge has a total length of 508 meters and took just over 3 years to build. The 5 parallel ribs of the arch are each made up of 9 sections that were lowered into place by a highline.
