CHANGSHA, Mar 21 (FAM) – A three-tower cable-stayed heavy railway bridge closed Sunday over Dongting Lake, the second-largest freshwater lake in China.

The 1,290-meter bridge is designed with a carrying load of 10,000 tonnes, enough to accommodate a fully-loaded train passing at a speed of 120 km per hour.
