Located just upstream of the G56 Expressway Shangba Bridge, the railway crossing is one of the higher spans along the Dali to Ruili Railway line in Yunnan Province.

Just 22 kilometers to the south is the giant Nujiang Railway arch bridge with a main span of 490 meters ranking among the 10 longest arch spans in the world.

The G56 Hangzhou-Ruili Expressway is a 4-lane route 2,935 kilometers long (1,824 miles). The expressway is one of the few in China to go all the way from the east coast to the western border. At Ruili, Yunnan the highway enters Muse, Burma where it becomes highway 3.
