Yaojiawan Railway Bridge is just 130 meters long but the tight crevasse it crosses makes it one of the more photogenic bridges on the spectacular Yiwan Railway line in Hubei Province. Completed in 2010, the route has no less then 8 bridges that surpass 100 meters in height - a record for any railway line.

Located directly in the center of the V-shaped gorge, the one central pier of Yaojiawan Railway Bridge is 80 meters tall supporting a T-span configuration of 60+60 meters.
