Sky ladder over the Yangtze

Sky ladder over the Yangtze


On completion, the Wuhan Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge will be the world's biggest double-decker steel truss suspension bridge

The construction site of the Wuhan Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge is located 200 meters up in the air. This is where nearly 80 workers from China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group toil, both day and night. They shuttle about on catwalks connecting the mighty river's north and south banks. Their main tasks include completing the main cable and the bridge deck, as they move about on iron nets on the catwalks, temporary structures that resemble a kind of "sky ladder" that spans the Yangtze River.

The massive construction project involves a double-tower, double-layer anchored steel truss girder highway suspension bridge with a main span of 1,700 meters. On completion, it will be the world's largest double-decker suspension bridge.

At present, due to soaring summer temperatures, workers start each day at 5 or 6 am. They take a break at noon, the hottest time of the day, before returning to work in the evening.
