With a six-lane highway and four railway tracks, the Shanghai-Suzhou-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge is the longest railway-highway cable-stayed bridge in the world. The Jinshajiang Grand Bridge along the Lijiang-Shangri-La Railway is about 250 meters vertical from the river, which sets up a "heavenly road" from Lijiang to Shangri-La. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is the longest cross-sea bridge in the world, connecting three places with one bridge.

Bridges are the embodiment of a country's scientific and technological level and overall national strength. Europe and America represented the world-class level before the 1970s, while Japan did in the 1990s, and China in the 21st century.

According to statistics, by the end of 2020, the total number of modern bridges in China has exceeded 1 million, accounting for half of the world's top ten bridges of all types. China's bridges have reached the world-class level in terms of spanning capacity, bridge-building technology, and construction materials. Sutong Yangtze River Bridge, Dankun Grand Bridge, Aizhai Bridge... A great number of world-class bridges have turned countless gorges into thoroughfares.

Today, China's bridges are also becoming the link between China and the world. More and more bridges are "going global" and becoming overseas "Chinese landmarks". Penang Second Bridge in Malaysia, Padma Bridge in Bangladesh, China-Maldives Friendship Bridge, Mohammed VI Bridge in Morocco... These Bridges, which have been completed or are under construction, demonstrate China's bridge-building technology and ability, showing the extraordinary strength of "built by China" and "created by China" to the world.
