On the morning of August 9, the arch of Youshui Bridge—the major project for Zhangjiajie-Jishou-Huaihua railway—was successfully closed, which creates a favorable condition for the main building of the bridge.
The length of Youshui Bridge is 462 meters, and its main span is 292 meters, the longest in the world. The successful closing of the arch marks a new breakthrough of Zhangjiajie-Jishou-Huaihua all-around tourism, which will further accelerate the development of local tourism.
Zhangjiajie-Jishou-Huaihua railway will be completely built in 2021 with a total length of 247.481 km. The designed speed is 350 km/h.
