China’s Nanjing redesigns bridge to make way for finless porpoises

(People's Daily Online)    16:13, April 11, 2019

Nanjing, in eastern China’s Jiangsu province, recently redesigned a bridge to make way for the finless porpoises that inhabit the Yangtze River.

The bridge, spanning the south and north banks of the longest river in Asia, is an important link between the Jiangbei New Area and Jiangning District of Nanjing.

According to Ma Zeng, an engineer from CCCC Highway Consultants Co., Ltd., the bridge was initially designed as a tri-tower suspension bridge with the central tower standing in the middle of the river.

The plan, which already aimed to reduce the structure's influence on local marine life, was still denied.

“To lower any adverse effects on finless porpoises in the river, we readjusted the construction plan together with the design company,” said Wei Chen from the Nanjing administration for public construction.

The proposed tri-tower bridge became a dual-tower one. The removal of the central tower guarantees that the activities and habitat of the finless porpoises won't change.

Though the change raised a higher request on capital and technological investment as the span of the bridge has increased, authorities said it was necessary for the better protection of finless porpoises.

Chen Yilin, director of a finless porpoise protection association in Yangzhou, Jiangsu, commented that the design change reflected not only the priority of ecology in construction, but also the harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.

Currently, the Yangtze River is home to around 1,000 finless porpoises.
