Working at high temperatures, overalls soaked in sweat are a common occurrence, so they often prepare several sets of clothes to replace at any time.
"Construction personnel, please note that Train No.41806 is approaching! Please leave the rail to avoid it." As the walkie-talkie warned again, the reporter followed the workers and left the rail. Not long after, with the whistle sound and hot wind, the train passed. The moment the train left, the workers were quickly back to work.

"The number of steps recorded by the phone reaching 20,000 to 30,000 a day is a very common thing, and it often reaches about 40,000." the foreman Zhou Ziyi smiled and teased, but he also revealed on behalf of colleagues that "the work is boring and strenuous, but no matter how much the sweating is, the safety and free passage of the bridge shall be guaranteed."
