With so much attention focused on the many high bridges in western China, it is nice to finally be able show one of the highest bridges in the eastern half of the country, the Xingduicha bridge. With a length of 673 feet (205 mtr), the span is one of two large concrete arch bridges along the newly improved S303 highway in Fujian Province. The nearby Tianchi arch is also 673 feet (205 mtrs) long. The height of Tianchi Bridge is unknown so I have them listed next to each other. The two spans look nearly identical though Tianchi has 18 spandrel openings while Xingduicha has only 13. Nearby Lingdou bridge is yet a third concrete arch but with a shorter span of just 525 feet (160 meters).


在把注意力集中在中国西部如此多的高桥之后,终于能够展示一座中国东半部的最高的桥梁了,行对岔大桥。跨径205米,这座桥是福建省最近修复的省道S303线路上两座特大拱桥之一,紧邻同等规模的天池大桥。天池大桥的高度并不是很清楚的情况下,我把这两座桥列在了一起。这两座条看起来几乎一样,天池大桥有18个拱跨,而行对岔仅有13个。附近不远处的岭兜大桥是另一座拱桥,主跨仅有160米。
