Daduhe Railway Bridge Chuanzang
Luding, Sichuan, China
1,214 feet high / 370 meters high
3,478 foot span / 1,060 meter span

The highest railway crossing in the world, the colossal 370 meter high Daduhe Railway Bridge in Luding is the first major river crossing on the east end of the spectacular 1,000 kilometer long Sichuan-Tibet Railway. The epic 1,060 meter main span of the suspension bridge is even more impressive for having 4 parallel tracks serving the highest railway station ever built.

There has never been a railway line as challenging as the Sichuan-Tibet Railway line with fifteen tunnels of more than 20 kilometers in length at oxygen deprived elevations surpassing 4,500 meters. Even more impressive, the route will have a dozen large bridges including the 3 highest railway suspension bridges ever built and the longest railway arch span.

Also known as the Chuanzang Railway, the east-west route will connect the large city of Chengdu with the remote desert region of Nyingchi, Tibet. The first section to be built is the Ya'an to Xinduqiao section in Kangding to be completed in 2028. This will be followed by the difficult middle section and eventually the Western section in 2032.

eventually to be followed by Linzhi to Bomi. section(west section),the middle section als main section perhaps will start in this year. The middle section so difficult need more than 10 years(2021-2032),and east section guess onlyabout 8 years(2020-2028),when Daduhe Railway Bridge Chuanzang 川藏铁路大渡河特大桥 finished in 2028,will become the highest railway bridge until about 4 years later be surpassed by Nujiang Railway Chuanzang and Sequ Railway,after that this bridge will still the highest 4 track railway bridge and the highest railway station.

Crossing a wide reservoir from a downstream dam just north of Luding city, the giant Daduhe suspension bridge is the

Luding was already one of the most famous cities in Western China for its legendary chain bridge of 100 meters that ranked among the longest suspension bridges in the world since its completion in 1701. Several historic battles have taken place at or near the chain bridge due to its strategic importance, most notably during the Long March in 1935.
