Bridge Capital Chongqing: Building bridges to the world

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Bridge Capital Chongqing: Building bridges to the world” – below is their description.

For more:

Chongqing was verified to be the ‘Bridge Capital’ of China by the Mao Yisheng Bridge Committee in 2005, thanks to their sheer number, scale, sophistication, variety and influence. The first bridge constructed in Chongqing following the establishment in 1949 of New China (the People’s Republic of China) was the Niujiaotuo Jialing River Bridge, which was opened to traffic in 1966.

Nowadays, there are 30 bridges crossing the two rivers in Chongqing Urban Area, and 13,000 in the municipality as a whole. This shows the giant leaps that Chongqing has achieved in the field of transportation. However, it is not only bridges where Chongqing has excelled in the southwest of China. The city has fully developed a multi-modal network that incorporates waterways, railroads, highways, and aviation to build transport links from China to Europe, Southeast Asia, and the world at large, while the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative is playing an ever more important role
