Tongshanxi has the unique distinction of being the highest bridge within any of China's eastern coastal provinces with a deck height of 180 meters. The large 200 meter beam span crosses a V-shaped gorge on the new expressway between Guanling to Zherong in Fujian Province just 1 kilometer west of its junction with the G15 coastal expressway. The two main piers measure 114 and 126 meters in height. The bridge has a total length of 627 meters with a span configuration of 2x40 + 110+ 200+ 110+ 3x40 meters.
The beautiful Tongshan Brook empties into Shacheng Harbor about 15 kilometers downstream of the bridge before the bay opens up into the East China Sea.
