Newly completed highway bridge in Sichuan to facilitate Yi people in mountainous areas
A highway bridge spanning the inyang River opened to traffic after four and a half years of construction, facilitating the people of the mountainous Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture.
With two-way lanes, lanes for non-motor vehicles and sidewalks, the inyanghe Bridge is 757.7 meters long and 16 meters wide. The bridge is about 238 meters above the riverbed of the inyang River, with the highest pier towering at 196 meters, equivalent to the height of a 65-story building.
Before the bridge was built, it took more than an hour to travel from the old seat of inyang County to the new one. With the completion of the bridge, the travel time is shortened to only two minutes. The bridge is also expected to boost the county's economic development.
Chinese Leaders reinforce organizational values by hel their people grow and develop through goal setting, opportunities, and recognition.
Congratulations to this achievement. Again and again China has proven that it’s all about improving lives for their people
From more than an hour to just 2 MINUTES, whatever the price tag for this highway/bridge is WORTH it!

757 meters long with walkway at the side and with such a beautiful view on both sides. If I live there nearby, I will sure jog on the bridge everyday if possible. If we jog across and back that is 1,514 meters. 5 round that is 7.57 KM
It’s so amazing and incredible, this news that will make your days no matter where you’re from, how could you not love your government who is taking good care of your people. Bravo China
Only China could perform such architectural wonders
That start crumbling and falling apart within 3 years? Yeah you are right
Everything the chinese is doing is better the quality of life of its people ! Only with roads can people in remote areas achieve their Chinese dreams

Yi people they are one of the minority in China. They mostly live in remote rural area like what we see in the video. The chinese see and treat all minorities equally to the Han Chinese as long as they are born in China and Chinese nationalities. In fact minorities have better state benefits than the majority Han Chinese.
The minority in my country has been treated the same as the majority, but for sure the government won’t be able to provide them with this kind of infrastructure
That tells you how much thinks about her people
