The longest span bridge ever built in Chongqing Province, the Wanzhou Fuma Yangtze River Bridge is the 3rd major road bridge across the Yangtze River at Wanzhou city and the second major suspension bridge. The main span of 1,050 meters is almost double the length of the nearby 2nd Wanzhou Bridge crossing and the first span upstream of the 3 Gorges Dam to have a length of over 1 kilometer.

The most unique design element of the bridge is the north and south side cantilevered beam approach bridges of 77.5+145+77.5 meters. The use of a large prestressed beam bridge right up to the tower and the main suspended span has only been done once before on the Fuling Qingcaobei Yangtze River Bridge located 200 kilometers upstream of Wanzhou.

The bridge height is an estimate to the original Yangtze River level. The height to the full 3 Gorges reservoir surface is approximately 115 meters.
