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).


龙王庙铁路桥是世界最高桥梁铁路线——宜万铁路——上的又一座高墩梁式结构高架桥。宜万铁路眼线70%以上的部分都或是隧道或是桥梁,复杂的地形地貌的地质条件要求工程师们克服山体滑坡、泥石流以及陡峭艰险的环境。该线上海由另外4座大桥,超过100米高,包括落步溪、马水河和渡口河大桥。

巨大的圆锥型的桥墩支撑起两个100米的主跨。全桥长达923米。
