Hongshuihe Bridge Tianba is a large, 6-lane cantilevered beam bridge with a main span of 198 meters on piers as tall as 109 meters. The route goes north and south between Pingtang to Tian'e to Fengshan. Also nearby is the Tian'e Longtan Bridge that became the longest span arch bridge in the world at 600 meters.

Unlike previous record breaking arch spans that have always been made of steel, the Longtan Tianhu Bridge is made of concrete. Steel was only used internally as part of a skeleton core that was encased in concrete.

The Tian'e Longtan concrete arch bridge crosses a deep reservoir along the Hongshuihe River just upstream of the Longtan Dam in Tian‘e County, Guangxi and is one of several large bridges along the mountainous Nandan to Xialaoxiang Expressway that links the G75 and G69 expressways.
