Excerpt from Wikipedia

The Hutong Yangtze River Bridge is a combined rail and road bridge which crosses the Yangtze River in Jiangsu, China.

On its upper level, it carries a six-lane highway. On its lower level it carries four railway tracks with a design speed of 200 km/h. The main span is 1,092 metres (3,583 ft) long and is supported by two 330 metres (1,080 ft) tall towers. It is the eastern-most railway crossing of the Yangtze river.

Construction began on 1 March 2014. The Nantong–Shanghai railway, opened on 1 July 2020, uses this bridge.
