Located on the Neijiang-Kunming Railway line, the Huatupo is one of Western China’s higher railway bridges. Two 341 foot (104 mtr) prestressed concrete beam spans are supported on three massive conical shaped piers that rise as high as 361 feet (110 mtrs). The 8th pier stands next to the Sancha River which is the dividing line between Yunnan and Guizhou Provinces. The nearby Lizigou bridge is on the same rail line and is of similar size and height.


位于内江-昆明铁路线上,花土坡大桥是中国西部最高的铁路桥之一。跨度104米长的预应力混凝土梁桥的两个主跨,支承在三个巨大的最高110米的棱锥型桥墩之上。第八个桥墩矗立在云南和贵州的界河三岔河附近。附近的李子沟大桥也是在同一条铁路线上,规模和高度都相近。
