Thanks for posting these pictures.

However, if these pictures are from Zhengzhou, then I believe this is the Yellow River crossing of the Wuhan - Beijing HSR. The Shanghai - Beijing HSR should cross the Yellow River somewhere near Jinan. Perhaps I am mistaken, so please double check.

There seems to be two different bridges pictured there - the one at the top is an arch bridge, while the one at the bottom is a cable stayed bridge. Maybe that's where the confusion is coming from.

Regardless, thanks for the pictures. China's rail/bridge engineers really are second to none.

One can really tell this bridge is for high speed. By even just looking at you can tell it is extremely rigid and robust.

The arch bridge crosses the Yellow River at Jinan for the BJ-SH line. The cable stayed bridge crosses at Zhengzhou for the BJ-Wuhan line.

July is over as well.

What is the flood doing, and has the railway made any progress?

They didn't meet the deadline of 06/30 like they hoped to.

According to some reports, they started testing on July 26th. Trial runs will be conducted in early September. The intercity rail will open in late September.

It is interesting to see that they spent more than three years to construct this 130km+ line, while the 300km Shanghai-Nanjing line was completed in two years. I guess aside from construction difficulty, less attention was paid to the Nanchang-Jiujiang line.
