Yangzi River Bridge information

Lonely Planet review

Opened on 23 December 1968, the Yangzi River Bridge is one of the longest bridges in China – a double-decker with a 4.5km-long road on top and a train line below. Wonderful socialist-realist sculptures can be seen on the approaches. Odds are that you’ll probably cross the bridge if you take a train from the north. Probably the easiest way to get up on the bridge is to go through the Bridge Park . Catch bus 67 from Jiangsu Lu, northwest of the Drum Tower (鼓楼; Gǔlóu), to its terminus opposite the park.
