Excerpt from Wikipedia
The Ma'anshan Yangtze River Bridge is a bridge complex over the Yangtze River in Ma'anshan, Anhui Province in eastern China. The bridge complex carries a six-lane highway over two branch streams of the Yangtze and the island of Xiaohuangzhou in the middle of the river.
The entire bridge complex is 11.209 km (6.965 mi) in length. The bridge over the left stream is a suspension bridge with three towers and two 1,080 m (3,540 ft) spans. This section is tied with the Taizhou Yangtze River Bridge as the longest double span suspension bridge in the world. The bridge over the right stream is a cable-stayed bridge with three towers and two 260 m (850 ft).
The deck height of the left stream bridge is 32 m (105 ft), while the deck height of the right stream bridge is 18 m (59 ft) high.
