The Qujiang Railway Bridge crosses the Qujiang River in South-Central Yunnan on the Yuxi to Mengxi Railway line. Unlike traditional Chinese railway bridges that are nearly always constructed with concrete beam spans, the Qujiang crossing consists of 3 large trusses, each 96 meters long. Approach spans are more conventional concrete beams with a 32 meter approach on one side and a 32 meter plus 2x 24 meter approach spans on the other. The tallest pier is 92 meters.

The height of the bridge necessitated the use of a cantilevered launching truss traveler.
