With so much attention focused on the many high bridges in western China, it is nice to finally be able show one of the highest bridges in the eastern half of the country, the Xingduicha bridge. With a length of 673 feet (205 mtr), the span is one of two large concrete arch bridges along the newly improved S303 highway in Fujian Province. The nearby Tianchi arch is also 673 feet (205 mtrs) long. The height of Tianchi Bridge is unknown so I have them listed next to each other. The two spans look nearly identical though Tianchi has 18 spandrel openings while Xingduicha has only 13. Nearby Lingdou bridge is yet a third concrete arch but with a shorter span of just 525 feet (160 meters).
