With a main span of 930 meters supported on towers 385 meters tall, the Nanpanjiang Bridge Puzhehei is the largest mountain cable stayed span ever built. The deck soars 444 meters above the full level of the reservoir that was created behind the Yunpeng Dam power station or 475 meters above the original level of the Nanpanjiang River.

Despite the great height of the Puzhehei Bridge deck, the real engineering achievement of this cable stayed colossus is the 385 meter tall west tower that surpassed the Millau Viaduct in France by 50 meters to become the world's tallest bridge structure.

The main span of 930 meters will also be a world record for the longest truss-deck cable stayed span ever. The span configuration is 3x84 +108 +930 +108 +3x84+3x40 for a total length of 1,777 meters. Puzhehei is the largest bridge on the Luxi to Qiubei to Guangnan to Funing route known as the Luqiuguangfu Expressway.
