Bridge Building Project @ Dujia Village, Chongqing

The “Yi Xin Qiao” bridge project in Dujia Village, Chongqing, is a collaboration project between The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Tsinghua University, Chongqing Jiaotong University and Chongqing University, completed in 2018. The bridge measures 21 metres long and 3 metres wide, with a usable surface of two metres wide. Constructed with 700 moso bamboos, it is the longest bridge among modern bamboo bridges in the rural mainland. With the help of the construction team, the team also designed and built a “Yujing Pavilion” for the villagers. Through this process, they learned the design and construction knowledge of bamboo structures in practice, increased their passion for bamboo culture, and began to pay attention to the situation of rural areas in China.
