New Yellow River Highway Bridge in Operation

A new road bridge over the Yellow River,China's second-longest river,opened to traffic Wednesday.

The double-tower stayed-cable Lijin Bridge,which connects the cities of Dongying and Binzhou in east China's Shandong Province,is 1,350 meters in total length.

Its 310-meter major span and 115-meter pile foundation exceed the relevant measurements of the other bridges over the river.

The bridge used a total investment of some 203 million yuan (over US$ 24 million)from three local enterprises,and was built in accordance with the international financing model of BOT(build-operate-transfer)。
