There are two main towers, one in the north, the other in the south. Each tower is as tall as more than 160 meters, or equals to a 50-story building. The 20-kilometer high-speed railway bridge is crossing the sea of Quanzhou Bay, part of the Fuzhou-Xiamen High-Speed Railway (277 km), and is expected to be operational in 2022.
