It is reported that the project is a section of the highway from Tongling to Shangcheng, Henan Province, an important part of the “five vertical and ten horizontal” highway network in our province. The total length of the road section is 27.456 km, including 19.81 km in Wuwei, Wuhu and 7.646 km in Chaohu, Hefei. It will be built in accordance with the standard construction of two-way six lanes, with a design speed of 120 km/h and a roadbed width of 34.5 meters.

After the completion of the project, it will become the second high-speed channel connecting Hefei and Wuhu, giving full play to the role of Tongling Yangtze River rail-highway bridge, greatly relieving the pressure of crossing the river, and further improving the regional expressway network.
