Gaoshan Bridge, linking the Gaoshan Road and Hongqi South Road over the Little Dongjiang River in Maoming, is one of the major bridges leading to the suburb from downtown. There is large traffic flow through the bridge everyday. The old Gaoshan Bridge was built in the early 1970s and wasn’t so secure as before. Therefore, a new one was built.
The new bridge passed the acceptance inspection and was open to traffic on January 1, 2016. On the morning of June 24, the government organized officers from transportation, city management, water affairs and public security to inspect the bridge with the construction organizations again. The bridge functions well and receives favorable reception from the public.
