318 feet high / 97 meters high
420 foot span / 128 meter span


The Quxihe Railway Bridge is one of a dozen major high level bridges along the HSR line between Wanzhou and Chongqing. The main span is 128 meters and crosses over the 3 Gorges reservoir that has flooded the lower reaches of the Quxi River canyon.

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.
