The Bridge

The population of the Chinese city of Wuhan is now approaching 10 million. It is on the Yangtze River in Hubei Province. Five main suspension bridges have been built over the river since the 1990s to promote further development and improve transport links.

The Yangluo Yangtze River Bridge is to the east of the city and was opened in 2007. The suspension bridge has concrete towers and the deck was constructed from prefabricated concrete sections.
