Yangtze River


Yangtze River is the fourth longest river in the world but is the number one in length in Asia. The river originates in a mountain of Tibetan plateau and eastwards through provinces of Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunan, Chongqing, Hubei, Hunan, and Anhui, then enters Nanjing of Jiangsu by crossing the provincial border at Maanshan between Jiangsu and Anhui.

Yangtze continues running through cities of Jiangsu including Zhenjiang, Yangzhou, Taizhou, Jiangyin of Wuxi, Nantong on both banks of the river, and finally reach Shanghai. Along its course within Jiangsu, Yangtze receives tributaries including Grand Canal and Huaihe River via Lakes of Hongze and Gaoyou.

The Yangtze River is traditionally been considered a dividing line to separate Jiangsu into two portions: the north and the south of Jiangsu. With its southern portion, there are cities including Nanjing, Zhenjiang, Changzhou, Wuxi, and Suzhou. The cities on the northern part include Yangzhou, Taizhou, Nantong, Yancheng, Huai’an, Suqian, Xuzhou, and Lianyungang.

Over the Jiangsu section of Yangtze River, there have already been four bridges in use, including the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge, the Nanjing Second Yangtze River Highway Bridge, Jiangyin Yangtze River Highway Bridge and Runyang Yangtze River Highway Bridge. The firth bridge, Suzhou-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge, has been starting since 2002 and it may be ready for use in 2008. The Nanjing Yangtze River Underground Tunnel is now in planning.
