An 11-inch-by-12-inch (30.5mm x 31.5 mm) composite board has been used for the first time to construct a carillion bridge in China.
The new construction is the first of its kind in the country, the China Railway Construction Corporation said in a statement.
The carillion building was built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first carillion crossing of the Yangtze River.
The construction began in August.
The first carillon to be constructed in China was constructed in 2006.
The carillion structure consists of a carillon, a central control room, and a central tunnel.
The control room contains a control system and an air-conditioning system, according to the China Rail Construction Corporation.
The bridge is expected to span a distance of 3,000 feet (900 meters), according to China Railway’s website.
The bridge is to be built on a 3.5-acre site, and the project is estimated to cost up to $500 million.
Construction began in October and will last at least six years.
