Excerpt from Wikipedia

The Yangsigang Yangtze River Bridge is a suspension bridge in Wuhan, Hubei, China. It opened to traffic on October 8, 2019 and is the second longest suspension bridge span in the world. The bridge spans 1,700 metres (5,577 feet) across the Yangtze River. The bridge is the longest double-deck bridge span in the world and carries motorized vehicles, non-motorized vehicles, and pedestrians on its two decks. The bridge cost CNY ¥8.5 billion (US$1.27 billion) to build.

The bridge connects the Hanyang and Wuchang. The upper deck has six lanes for vehicles which connect to the urban expressway system and 2 m (6.6 ft) wide pedestrian walkways on each side of the bridge. The lower deck includes four more motor vehicle lanes that connect to the city streets, two 2.5 m (8.2 ft) lanes for non-motorized vehicles, and two more pedestrian walkways. The overall length of the bridge is 4.134 kilometres (2.57 miles).
