Located just downstream of the Shangba Railway Bridge, the G56 Expressway Shangba crossing is one of the rare Chinese bridges with simple drop-in spans of 40 meters that exceed 90 meters in height.

The G56 Hangzhou-Ruili Expressway is a 4-lane route 2,935 kilometers long (1,824 miles). The expressway is one of the few in China to go all the way from the east coast to the western border. At Ruili, Yunnan the highway enters Muse, Burma where it becomes highway 3.
