Santiago Calatrava has been hired to design three landmark road and pedestrian bridges in the rapidly expanding Chinese city of Huashan. Huashan is situated approximately 20 kilometers east of Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province in central China. These three iconic steel bridges will span the new Yangtze River canal, which connects to feeder lakes of the Yangtze River. The trio of bridges, called Xihu, Xianbi and Lincong, will facilitate vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians between the two sides and along the banks of the rapidly developing city. The construction of these bridges is central to the development of Huashan’s new urban center.
