Changtianwan Railway Bridge
Fengdu, Chongqing, China
308 feet high / 94 meters high
262 foot span / 80 meter span


The Changtianwan Railway Bridge is one of a dozen major high level bridges along the HSR line between Wanzhou and Chongqing. The two main spans of 80 meters cross over the main river channel with dozens of smaller spans making up the rest of the 1,675 meter length of the viaduct. Just to the south is the Yanjiagou Railway Bridge.

The most spectacular bridges along the route cross over the Caijiagou and Xinqiao creeks and rank among the largest railway viaducts on earth. They parallel the original Caijiagou and Xinqiao viaducts on the older Yu-Li Railway line that goes east across the Yangtze near Fuling city before traveling east into Hubei Province.
