The Longwangmiao Railway Bridge is another high pier and beam viaduct on the greatest high bridge railway in the world - the Yichang to Wanzhou Railway line. With more than 70 percent of the route either in a tunnel or on a bridge, the complex geology of the terrain has forced the engineers to overcome landslides, falling rock and steep terrain. The line has an unprecedented 5 bridges that exceed 100 meters in height including Yexihe, Luobuxi, Mashuihe and Dukouhe.

Massive, conical shaped piers with a maximum height of 106.5 meters support two main spans of 328 feet (100 mtrs). The total length of the bridge is 3,028 feet (923 mtrs).
