The world's largest cable-stayed bridge, the Changtai Yangtze River Bridge in east China's Jiangsu Province, achieved full connectivity on Sunday after five years of construction.

The bridge, which connects cities of Changzhou and Taizhou in Jiangsu, has a total length of 10.3 kilometers. It is the first cross-river bridge that integrates a high-speed railway, an intercity railway and an ordinary road over the Yangtze River, the world's third longest river.

Construction of the bridge started in 2019 and it is expected to open to traffic by the end of April next year.

The closure of the main girder of the bridge was achieved precisely with an error of less than 2 mm, which is no mean feat.

"Next, we will work on the construction of ancillary facilities. The bridge is expected to pass the dynamic and static load testing and acceptance test by the end of April next year. By then, the bridge will be ready to open to traffic," said Li Haifeng, deputy head at the construction site.

Upon completion, the bridge is expected to help improve regional transportation network and contribute to the implementation of national projects of strategic importance, such as the building of Belt and Road intersection, the development of Yangtze River Economic Belt and the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta.
