Yesterday was the first day of work after the National Day holiday. The Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge, which attracted much attention from the people of Jiangcheng, was opened to traffic, and the Yangling Port Expressway Qingling section was opened simultaneously.
As the world's largest double-storey suspension bridge, the "Golden Autumn Yellow" Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge is particularly beautiful in the golden autumn of Jiangcheng. The tourist trail on the top of the bridge has attracted many citizens to "check in" and become a new landmark on the bridge overlooking the river.
Sightseeing trails are not affected by traffic flow
"This is the world's largest double-storey suspension bridge with a main tower of 241 meters high." At 9 am yesterday, 83-year-old Zhu Xuede stood on the bridge next to the main tower of Wuchang'an and excitedly introduced it to several old friends. , Taking pictures of his vicissitude card machine.
Zhu Xuede's family lives on the purple capital of the Yangtze River beside Wujindi Road, which is beside the Wuchang River. You can view the bridge from a balcony window at home. "The main span of 1700 meters, completed 49 steel beams in 36 days ..." Zhu Xuede, who has retired from the shipyard for many years, is still sensitive to the relevant data of Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge. "I watched it from day to day, and I hope that the bridge will be officially opened to traffic every day." Zhu Xuede said that his grandson lived in the bright Shanghai mansion near Sixin North Road across the river. He had to go to see the grandson and he could only drive his daughter. It takes more than half an hour to pick it up, and now you can take a walk from Yangsi Port Bridge.
Zhu Xuede and a group of old friends boarded the top deck from the ground floor of the bridge through the stairway on the main tower, and the view was suddenly wide. Walking to the platform of the sightseeing trail, he sighed, "Very comfortable and completely unaffected by the traffic on the side."
Every detail is the ingenuity of the bridge designer. Xu Gongyi, chief designer of Yangsi Port Yangtze River Bridge, introduced that the width of the upper pedestrian walkway was 2 meters, which was 60 cm higher than the motorway on the bridge, and was widened to 3 meters and 15 meters in length every 150 meters. The rest area is for the citizens to experience the river and tour better. At the same time, the reporter saw at the scene that the tourist walkway used newly developed plastic steel materials, at first glance, it looks like a wooden boardwalk. The foot feels very light, and it also has sun protection, wear resistance, and non-slip functions.
On the railings of the sightseeing trail, 12 hollow carved panels are installed, including the Yellow Crane Tower, Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, Wuhan University, Jinghan Railway Station, Guiyuan Temple, Jianghan Pass, Red Tower, Hubei Provincial Museum, People's Paradise, National Expo Center, Buildings with Wuhan characteristics, such as the Erqi Yangtze River Bridge and Yingtuzhou Yangtze River Bridge, carry the memory of this city.
"Skate the old boy" experience on the bridge
Along the sightseeing walk on the upper level of the bridge, walk to the main tower of Hanyang Bank and go down the stairs to the bottom of the bridge. The six-lane motor vehicle lane has a speed limit of 60 km / h, and two-meter-wide non-motorized lanes are set up in the trusses on both sides. 1.5-meter-wide sidewalks are arranged on the outside of the truss structure.
Walking across the bridge's ground floor is like walking on the "belly" of the bridge. How does it feel? The 70-year-old "skating old boy" Yang Zhigen lamented that the charm of this super bridge can only be realized by walking into the steel bars.
On the same day, he made a special trip from Wuchang to take a bus to experience. Put on roller skates, "speed" back and forth on the upper and lower decks. "Especially the bottom sidewalk, which is extremely non-slip. I wear roller skates with particularly high friction."
A 64-year-old retired worker Yin Ezhou gave a thumbs up to the sidewalk on the bottom of the bridge. At 10 am yesterday, when the reporter met him on the ground floor, he was riding a bicycle with a 2-year-old grandson and ran a round trip on the bridge. "From the bridge in Hanyang in the early morning, I rode to Wuchang, now riding Back to Hanyang. ”Yin Ezhou lives in the Yangsi Temple area near the Hanyang River.“ My name has a continent, and I was born on the Hanyang River, close to Parrot Island. ”
Growing up on the Wuhan River since I was a child, Yin Ezhou was emotional. When I was young, there was only one bridge of the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge. It took more than an hour to ride or take a bus to Wuchang. Later, I watched the Yangtze River Second Bridge, Tianxingzhou Bridge, Bai The Shazhou Bridge and the Nautilus Bridge were completed and opened to traffic, "Wuhan really deserves the title of" bridge capital "."
Interestingly, Yin Ezhou ran transportation before his retirement. During the construction of the Second Yangtze River Bridge, the Erqi Yangtze River Bridge, and the Baishazhou Bridge, he drove the rebar to the construction site with a big trailer. "Now the bridge is getting better and better. You can see that the pavement of this sidewalk, the fine-grained material, is the same as the plastic track, which is shock-absorbing, wear-resistant, absorbent, and comfortable to walk."
Li Xinghua, Chief Engineer of Yangsi Gang Yangtze River Bridge, explained that the pedestrian walkway on the bottom adopts a thin anti-slip epoxy paving process, and basalt gravel is spread on it, which has high anti-sliding and durability, protects the bridge and improves the citizens. Walking comfort.
