A major waterway in Sichuan Province, the Dadu River runs through an especially deep gorge in the mountains west of Chengdu. The Shenxigou through arch bridge is a concrete filled steel tube span with a length of 630 feet (192 mtrs). During construction, tieback cables were anchored directly into the cliffs on either side of the canyon, eliminating the need for any high line towers.
