Santiago Calatrava Designs 3 New Bridges to Span Yangtze River Canal

World renowned Spanish architect  Santiago Calatrava has been commissioned to design three bridges in Huashan, east of Wuhan, China. These steel bridges - Xihu, Xianbi and Lincong - will span 1.5 kilometers of the city's new Yangtze River canal, providing access to the public including pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.The construction will begin in late 2016.

“Architecture is one of the art forms best able to improve and revitalize cities both artistically and functionally,” said Calatrava. “The Huashan project is a clear example of how an urban element, key to the successful growth of the city, can at the same time improve the quality of life for its citizens, thanks to an integration of all three bridges and the creation of boulevards on the banks of the canal.”

For your information, Wuhan is the most populous city in Central China and has the nickname "Oriental Chicago." The Yangtze River and its branch Han River divide the metropolis into three parts, and the railways from Beijing to Guangzhou and from Shanghai to Chongqing including the new high-speed ones pass through the city.
