The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is a double-decked road-rail truss bridge across the Yangtze River between Pukou and Xiaguan in Nanjing, China. Its upper deck is part of China National Highway 104, spanning 4,588 meters. Its lower deck is a 6,772-metre-long double-track railway and completes the Beijing-Shanghai Railway, which had been divided by the Yangtze for decades. Its right bridge consists of 9 piers, with the maximal span of 160 meters and the total length of 1576 meters. The bridge carries approximately 80,000 vehicles and 200 trains per day.
The bridges were completed and open for traffic in 1968. It was the third bridge over the Yangtze after the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge and the Chongqing Baishatuo Yangtze River Bridge. It was the first heavy bridge designed and built by China's own technical strength, and therefore considered as one of the greatest accomplishments and a proof of the spirit and ability of the Chinese people in Mao Zedong's era.
