The Luobuxi bridge spans a deep chasm on the incredible Yi-Wan Railway line that runs between Yichang not too far from the 3 Gorges Dam to Wanxian on the Yangtze River in Chongqing municipality. To support the double track rail lines, the arch bridge has two large concrete ribs that are 41 feet (12.5 mtrs) apart at the base and 18 feet (5.5 mtrs) apart at the crown. The 584 foot (178 mtr) span has a rise of 130 feet (40 mtrs).

Luobuxi is one of an incredible 8 bridges on the Yi-Wan line that exceed 100 meters in height. The other 7 include Yexihe, Mashuihe, Dukouhe, Makou, Longwangmiao, Shuangliu and Sibuhe.


中国第二高度的铁路拱桥结构,落步溪大桥跨越深渊,位于令人难以置信的宜万铁路工程上,这条铁路将连接其三峡大坝不远处的宜昌市和重庆直辖市的滨江城市万县。为了能够支撑起这条双线铁路,拱桥结构设置了两道巨大的混凝土拱圈,在拱脚间距12.5米、拱顶间距5.5米。178米的主跨矢高40米高。

落步溪大桥是这条几乎与“世界最高悬索桥和最高拱桥之家”的沪蓉西高速公路平行的宜万铁路干线上的最高的桥梁之一。全线建有大量的隧道、各种形式和规模的桥梁的宜万铁路预计将于2010年通车。
