By the end of this month, the Wuhu Yangtze River Third Bridge will be ready for traffic. As a key project of Wuhu city, it is connected to the urban road network, further meeting the needs of urban development.
Reporters see that asphalt has been laid, street lights, traffic lines and road signs have been installed in place. The route is about 1.37 kilometers long. This section of viaduct is located in the “downtown area”, with large traffic flow, many pedestrians, harsh construction environment, difficult traffic organization, high safety requirements, high technical difficulty, and extremely limited operation space.
Due to the specific conditions of the project, with the cooperation of relevant municipal departments, the engineers and technicians made a correct understanding of the hoisting process and efficient response through the verification, demonstration of technical data and digital information simulation technology. In the construction process, they avoided the traffic rush hour, carefully organized the work period of each team, worked overtime, and finally completed the whole project successfully.
After the Wuhu Yangtze River Third Bridge is opened to traffic, citizens can cross the Yangtze River from the Chizhu Mountain Road viaduct, and drive into the Wuhu-Hefei Expressway after the toll station, which not only improves the traffic efficiency, but also reduces the traffic pressure of Wuhu Yangtze River Bridge.
