The Mashuihe River Railway bridge is located deep in the mountains of China’s Western Hubei Province. The towering beam span is one of 5 crossings over 100 meters in height on the incredible Yi-Wan Railway line that runs between Yichang near the 3 Gorges Dam to Wanxian and Chongqing City on the Yangtze River. 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 5 bridges that exceed 100 meters in height also include Luobuxi, Yexihe, Dukouhe and Longwangmiao.

Mashuihe has a span configuration of 116+ 116+ 32 meters atop a central pier 108 meters tall. The total length is 281.66 meters.


马水河铁路桥位于中国湖北省深山之中,是新建的宜万铁路线上的最高的桥梁中的一座。宜万铁路线从宜昌到万县,线路大致与“世界上最高的悬索桥和拱桥”所在的沪蓉西高速公路干线相平行。宜万铁路上布满了隧道和各种形式和规模的桥梁,这条双线铁路将于2010年开通。世界上的铁路迷们,欢呼吧!
