According to Luo Ruihua, project manager of the bridge, the Yangsigang Yangtze River Bridge has set several records in the process of its construction.

The designed tension of each of the two main cables is 65,000 tons.

From July 2015 to September 2019, builders have shown the world the speed of New China. The bridge not only enhances Wuhan's reputation as a 'bridge museum', but also represents a super project of a new era, coming at the time of the People's Republic of China's 70th anniversary.
