According to CGTN, the bridge was demolished to make way for a newer bridge. Built in 1978, Nanhu bridge was seen as a potential safety hazard.
According to ChinaDaily, the new bridge will be wider, allowing for space on both sides of the bridge to be reserved for pedestrians. The new bridge is expected to be open to traffic by the end of September. Click for more trending news
