The Ganjinghe Railway Bridge is one of a dozen major high level bridges along the HSR line between Wanzhou and Chongqing. The main span of 144 meters crosses over a tributary of the Yangtze River. The rail deck is approximately 90 meters above the full 3 Gorges Reservoir water surface supported on a pier 87 meters tall. Just to the south is the similar sized Nanxicun Railway Bridge.

The most spectacular bridges along the route cross over the Caijiagou and Xinqiao creeks and rank among the largest railway viaducts on earth. They parallel the original Caijiagou and Xinqiao viaducts on the older Yu-Li Railway line that goes east across the Yangtze near Fuling city before traveling east into Hubei Province.
