Bridges of Chongqing

October 2011

While in Russia, year in year out, they’ve been sawing and keep on sawing, in the Celestial Empire they are building a new World Superpower, which is impossible without modern roads and bridges.

Caiyuanba Bridge (Càiyuánbà chángjiāng dàqiáo - 菜园坝长江大桥)



Caiyuanba Bridge across the Yangtze River. Dates of construction are 2003-2007. The maximum span length is 420m.

The Chaotianmen Bridge (Cháotiānmén chángjiāng dàqiáo - 朝天门长江大桥)

This bridge across the Yangtze has the longest arch span in the world – 552 m.
The total length of the bridge is 1.7 km. Dates of construction are 2004-2009.
This is one of the three bridges, which I crossed on foot in Chongqing from one bank to another.









The bridge passed at level of the 7th floor of the house on the slope of the Yangtze. So as not to demolish a house, some portion of the walkway had to be narrowed down.













The Shibanpo Bridge (Shíbǎnpō chángjiāng dàqiáo - 石板坡长江大桥) over the Yangtze River

Bridge Shibanpo over the Yangtze was built from 1977 to 1980. From 2003 to 2006 the throughput capacity of the bridge was doubled, having attached to it one more part of the same width.









Some other bridges of Chongqing



Huanghuayuan Bridge (Huánghuāyuán dàqiáo - 黄花园大桥) over Jialing River.
The length of the main part of the bridge 1208m. Dates of construction are 1996-1999.

Jialingjiang Bridge (jiālíngjiāng dàqiáo - 嘉陵江大桥). Built in 1966.




Yuao Bridge (Yúàodàqiáo - 渝澳大桥), what means Macau, across the River Jialing.
The bridge is so named in honor of the return of Macau to China on December 16, 1999.




Egongyan Bridge (Égōngyán chángjiāng dàqiáo - 鹅公岩长江大桥) over Yangtze River
Dates of construction are 1997-2000. The maximum span length is 600 meters.
