Second Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge

The Second Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge (Chinese: 武汉长江二桥, Wuhan Changjiang Er Qiao) is a bridge across the Yangtze River in Wuhan, Hubei province, China. It is located northeast (downstream) of the historic central area of the city's Hankou District.

Construction

This is a cable-stayed bridge built of pre-stressed concrete, has a central span of 400 metres. It is 4,678 meters in length (including 1,877 meters of the main bridge) and 26.5 to 33.5 meters in width. Its main bridgeheads are 90 meters high each, pulling 392 thick slanting cables together in the shape of double fans, so that the central span of the bridge is well-poised on the piers and the bridge's stability and vibration resistance are ensured. With six lanes on the deck, the bridge is designed to handle 50,000 motor vehicles passing every day. The bridge was completed in 1995.
