The Chinese will often extend the name of their biggest bridges with ‘Extra Large’ or ‘Grand’. In the case of the Lizigou Extra Large Bridge, the structure lives up to the hype. The bridge measures 3,386 feet (1,032 mtrs) long with 3 main spans of 420 feet (128 mtrs). The bridge is one of two massive structures on the new 560 mile (900 km) Neijiang-Kunming Railway line. The other is the Huatupo Extra Large Bridge with circular shaped piers instead of rectangular as on Lizigou.


中国人习惯在一座大桥的名字前加上“特大”、“大”的字眼儿。比方说,李子沟特大桥,这座大桥则称得上为超级系列的大桥了。大桥全长1032米,有三个128米的主跨。它是从内江至昆明的560英里(900公里)长的新建铁路线上的两座特大桥之一。李子沟大桥未采用方形而使用了圆形构造的桥墩。
