The rail link between Tianjin and Nanjing’s Pukou district－the Tientsin-Pukow Railw
ay－was completed in 1912. But the two lines could not be connected because there was no bridge across the river.
According to the Academy of Sociology, which was founded by scholars from Nanjing Univers
ity, at least two structures－the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge and the Chongqing Baishatuo Yangtze
River Bridge－were built before the Nanjing structure. But neither was considered a landmark by the public.
In 1913, Zhan Tianyou, who was known as “the father of China’s railways”, traveled to Nan
jing to inspect the Yangtze riverbed to build a bridge. However, he dropped his plan because the river had an ave
rage width of 1,500 meters, was more than 70 meters at its deepest and the water flow was 3 meters per second.
Zhan reportedly stayed for a few days, left without saying a word, and then decided to inspe
ct the river in Wuhan, Hubei province, before completing the first design for the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge.
an underwater tunnel should be built to connect the railways in Nanjing
, but his dream was not realized for about 100 years. In 1929, Sun’s casket was transpor
ted to Pukou district along the Tientsin-Pukow Railway before being ferried to downtown Nanjing.
In 1930, John Alexander Low Waddell, a 76-year-old Canadian who was a
traffic consultant to the Chinese government, said the Yangtze in Nanjing was too deep and
was flowing too fast to construct a bridge, according to the Academy of Sociology.
The government launched large-scale investigations in 1936 and 1946 before dropping the pla
n. In 1956, the State Council, China’s Cabinet, proposed constructing the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge.
To test the bridge’s load-bearing capacity, Xu Shiyou, who comma
nded the Nanjing Military Region, ordered an armored regim
ent to drive 118 amphibious tanks on the newly built structure at 8 am on Sept 25, 1969.
