One of Western China's longer concrete arch spans, the Liuguihe Bridge crosses a deep reservoir that was once a cliff lined gorge. Highlines were used to build the arch out from either side. The bridge is located about 10 miles (16 kms) south of the Gui-Bi highway in Guizhou province.


这座中国西部地区跨径很大的混凝土拱桥,六圭河大桥跨越了一个原本是峡谷的、很深的水库(贵州省水电站at Hongjiadu Hydropower Station, Guizhou)库区。施工时两岸用高空缆索架设拱桥。
