The 4,100-metric-ton Nakuan super major bridge of the Nanning-Yulin High-speed Railway was rotated to its target position on June 28 in Liujing town of Hengzhou, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
The Nanning-Yulin High-speed Railway is the first high-speed train with a designated speed of 350 kilometers per hour which is independently invested and built by Guangxi.
It starts from Nanning East Station in the west and stretches 193.31 km to Yulin North Station, connecting Nanning, Guigang and Yulin. Six stations are set up along the railway, which is set to be an important part of Guangxi's railway network and connect city clusters in Beibu Gulf and areas in southeast Guangxi.
The railway will cut the travel time between Nanning and Yulin to 33 minutes from the previous 125 minutes, and is the first high-speed rail in Yulin. It is also expected to accelerate Guangxi's integration into the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
