Xiapingchuan Bridge is the highest and most spectacular bridge on the expressway between Panxian and Xingyi in Guizhou Province. Crossing over a sleepy valley of farms and terraces, Xiapingchuan Bridge appears unusually tall due to the relatively short main span of 160 meters perched upon piers as tall as 140 meters.
The 697.5 meter long structure has a span configuration of 3x30 +85+160+85 +9x30 meters.
