The Shuimotan Reservoir Railway Bridge is one of a dozen major high level bridges along the HSR line between Wanzhou and Chongqing. The main span of 163 meters crosses over the Shuimotan Reservoir as well as the Changfu Expressway.

The most spectacular bridges along the route cross over the Caijiagou and Xinqiao creeks and rank among the largest railway viaducts on earth. They parallel the original Caijiagou and Xinqiao viaducts on the older Yu-Li Railway line that goes east across the Yangtze near Fuling city before traveling east into Hubei Province.
