-Travel to Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge

Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge Is not only a bridge, but also a famous travel site. It is the first highway-railway bridge over the Yangtze River,started in 1955,and the grand bridge project takes about two years. On the mighty Yangtze with a length of 6,300 kilometers (3,915 miles), there was no bridge for thousands of years. This river seemed an obstacle set by nature, separating Hanyang, Hankou and Wuchang, namely the three towns of Wuhan. Moreover, it blocked the transportation between the north and the south China. Only ship can be used. However, the natural

obstacle became accessible for various vehicles due to the finish of the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge in 1957.The bridge is extremely firm. It has not been harmed even during the huge Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008.Extending from Tortoise Hill (Gui Shan) in Hanyang to Snake Hill (She Shan) in Wuchang, the bridge has not only improved the transportation in Wuhan City, but also enhanced the communication between the north and the south of the river. To fully view the splendid bridge and the marvelous river, you can climb up the 7-story bridge tower

at either end of the bridge by elevator or staircases. The attached buildings and decorations are harmonious and exquisite, reflecting rich Chinese architectural features. The theme of sculptures on the 143 panes along each side of the bridge is from some Chinese folk stories such as the peacock showing its fine feathers, carp playing among lotus, a magpie singing on blossom tree.
