CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The 60-year-old Wu is a trackwalker on the Chongqing – Guizhou Railway and is stationed next to the Baishatuo Bridge. His job is to check for hidden dangers and ask passers to be careful; he is called “Bridgeward” by nearby residents. There are six passenger and freight transport railway lines on and under the New Baishatuo Yangtze River Bridge. In addition to preventing people and animals from entering into the bridge, Wu also checks the lower freight transport railway lines that have not been put into use and sees if the facilities are normal.
