The second highest pipeline crossing in the world, the Wujiang ZhongGui Pipeline suspension bridge has a double level truss deck for a gas pipe on the top and a future oil pipeline on the bottom. The natural gas pipeline originates in Turkmenistan, Asia before going south across the bridge to Guiyang City. When completed, the top pipe will carry oil from Burma north from Guiyang in the opposite direction of the gas pipe. The square box truss is supported by towers 41 meters tall and measures 480 meters in length from anchorage to anchorage.
