Yangtze River Bridges - Significance

Yangtze River was called "natural moat" since people could only take a ferry to cross the river. The transportation between the two banks has to be completely stopped on a bad day (such as a foggy day). People's life and work are greatly influenced. With the development of our society, the communication between two banks of Yangtze River becomes more and more important.

The construction of Yangtze River Bridges greatly changes the traffic condition between the two banks of Yangtze River. The bridges connect the two banks of Yangtze River, alleviate the traffic pressure and also activate the economy.
