Qikong Bridge lit by neon lights
The night scene in Yuzhong has always been a spotlight. What else are the highlights besides the night scenes such as Hongyadong?
A person in charge of the Yuzhong District City Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau said that the night lighting has been upgraded. Qikong Bridge, Jiaochangkou and Shenglipo landscape lighting improvement project have started, bringing a better night scene to the global tourists.
"Qikong Bridge" is like the dusty memory of old Chongqing. It is in the mountain wall between Lianglukou and Eling in Yuzhong District as well as an important passageway for Yuzhong Peninsula. It faces the Yangtze River in the south, the cliffs in the north, and goes east to west. The total length is about 200 meters. A viaduct formed by multiple arches, it is commonly known as " Qikong Bridge."
Night lighting of Qikong Bridge makes the ancient bridge bloom in the night sky of the mountain city through the light. When night falls, the bridge glows like a rainbow, and it shines in the beautiful night of the peninsula. (Translated by Yang Lifu, Fathom Language Limited)
