Tangxihe Railway Bridge is one of several spectacular crossings on the heavily tunneled Zhengzhou to Chongqing high speed railway that skirts through the mountains along the famous 3 Gorges region of Hubei and Chongqing Provinces.

The 180 meter beam-arch carries a double track line high over the deep waters of the reservoir that formed from the giant 3 Gorges Dam. Just to the south of the railway bridge is the Tangxihe Bridge on the G42 Hurong Expressway that opened in 2009.

Other big railway bridges include a 300 meter steel arch over the Daninghe River, a 200 meter beam-arch span over the Pengxi River, a 260 meter beam-arch over the Shennongxi, a 340 meter concrete arch over the Meixihe and other large beam crossings over the Zhuyuan and Xingshan Rivers.
