说明:

原博配图有3000*2000像素以上高清图,这里只用了其750像素缩略图,看大图请点原文。

省略少数和建筑、桥梁关系不大的照片如旅途食宿一类以节省篇幅。

部分照片添加了译者注,原文没有而译者添加的都放在括弧里。

他们每年所去的桥都有很大不同,除少数几座标志性桥梁,其它是轮换参观的(中国高桥太多了),看过2014游记的完全不必担心重复。

2013 年的游记个人以为是2011——2014年中最佳的。因2012年是长江大桥游,长江大桥虽规模很大,和世界各地大型桥梁类似,并无惊人之处。2011年 时中国建成在建的山地桥梁和高速公路还比较少。2014年遭遇洪水,或许阴雨天多,同样三周内游历桥梁不及2013年多,照片也不够清晰。2013年虽天 气炎热,很少阴雨,是前四年最佳的一篇。

期待今后的2015、16等季能看到更精彩的照片,因为有大批更宏伟、设计也更漂亮的新桥开始兴建,目前中国在建的桥面高300米以上跨谷桥梁比历年建成的还要多。

2013年中国(西南)高桥之旅照片集

(第一周)湖北和重庆的桥梁

The 3-week 2013 High Bridge trip was another grand adventure through the mountains of Western China to visit the world's 10 highest bridges as well as many other spans and several spectacular national parks. Our guests included 3 retirees made up of British dentist Lee Choong and engineering twins John and Ray Morrison of Australia. Rounding out the group of bridge fans was Canadian 'In the Wake of Tacoma' bridge book author Richard Scott. Our translator was yet another energetic Tongji University bridge engineering student with the famous name of Bruce Lee. On board for the second year in a row was our trusty driver Mr. Chen who navigated us safely along more then 2,000 miles / 3,500 kilometers of often crazy roads.

为期三周的2013年高桥之旅是又一次伟大的探险。穿行于中国西部的崇山峻岭中,同时游览世界 前十名最高桥梁和许多其他小桥以及壮观的国家公园。我们一起包车旅行的包括3名退休人士:英国牙医李冲(音)、澳洲双胞胎工程师约翰和雷莫里森、加拿大桥 梁爱好者“被塔科马大桥惊醒”这本书籍的作者理查德斯科特。我们的翻译是一位精力充沛的同济大学桥梁专业学生Bruce Lee(李小龙),加上连续第二年和我们一起旅行的司机师傅陈先生,他为大家开车通过了3500公里有时相当艰险的山路。

(注,这就是为何 此次旅行经典的原因之一,游客来自美、英、加、澳四国,包括作者-世界高桥网站站长,两位工程师,一位出版过桥梁著作的爱好者,大多是专业人士。同济大学 桥梁专业也是中国最知名的。塔科马大桥是美国一座900米左右主跨的悬索桥,曾经发生过坍塌事故,是世界最有名的断桥事故,所以才被写成书)

If there was one word to describe the 2013 trip it would be HOT! Record temperatures were being broken throughout many parts of China during our 3 week trek and it often made it difficult to want to get out of the comfortable confines of our air conditioned mini-van to snap some photos of a bridge. Luckily our group of gray-haired grandpas were up for anything and never hesitated or showed fear to visit any bridge I wanted to visit whether it required dodging highway traffic, climbing over a wall, hopping on a boat, hiking along a creek or taking a concrete slide down into a canyon.

如果用一个词形容2013年旅行感受那就是 !破纪录的高温袭击中国很多地区,以至使我们从有空调的微面出来为桥梁拍照成为难事。幸运的是这次拼车旅行团尽管多数团员年龄偏大,但无论在攀登桥梁、跨越障碍、乘坐小艇或是徒步山路时都毫不畏惧。(毕竟团员大多是桥梁界专业人士)

Our new rental car held up well as it was put through an unusually high amount of abuse along more miles of rough, bumpy and broken roads than all of my previous China trips combined. The weather was only sunny half the time but we did manage to evade any rain for nearly the entire trip. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food even if they did not always know what kind of vegetable they were eating but by the end of the trip we all knew what kinds of meats we liked or wanted to avoid.

我们新租的车一直保持车况良好,尽管经过很多艰险、崎岖和破碎的道路。只有一半的日子是晴天,但在整个旅途中几乎没遇到雨天。尽管大家分不清吃的是哪种蔬菜,每人看来都对饮食很满意。最后我们终于弄清哪种肉类是大家喜欢的,什么是需要避免的。

We are eternally gratefull to the Chinese engineers and authorities we met who were kind, generous and always willing to let us climb on their bridges like children in a playground. These surprise tours took us above and below some of the most amazing spans in the history of bridge construction including an elevator ride up one of the world's tallest bridge towers, a walk through one of the world's largest suspension bridge trusses and a precarious hike across a chicken-wire footbridge nearly 300 meters high. A special thanks to Liupanshui County engineer Zhou Ping and the wonderful Chen family who treated us like royalty in their own personal kingdom - the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Park. Finally a thanks to all the Chinese locals who were always friendly and often curious as to why we would travel halfway around the world to visit their remote town or bridge.

我们得到了一路遇到的中国工程师和管理者得很大帮助,他们通常很热情,让我们登 上(在建)的桥梁参观,好像儿童到了游乐园。这些出人意料的旅程让我们得以在许多赏心悦目的角度拍摄桥梁,包括世界上最高的桥塔电梯之一。一次通过世界最 长的悬索桥钢桁梁内部的旅行,以及一次在距离水面300米以上高空施工便桥上拍照的机会。特别感谢六盘水遇到的工程师周平,以及待我们亲如一家的陈先生 (张家界大峡谷公园经营者,当时在策划修建世界最高的跨谷玻璃桥,请这几位考察者一起出谋划策)。同时感谢所有中国当地民众,他们总是很热情,有时对我们跨 越大半个地球考察他们遥远(几年前还几乎与世隔绝)的城镇和桥梁感觉好奇。

Look for an even more exciting Chinese adventure in 2014 when we visit more than 75 of the world's highest spans including construction site visits to the highest road and railway bridges on earth!

期待下一次更精彩的2014年中国(桥梁)探险。那时我们将游览世界最高的桥梁中75座,包括一些激动人心的建筑工地,还有世界最高的几座铁路和公路桥!

(译注:实际因2014年遭遇大水,三星期内很多桥梁没有到达,前三周的游记不如2013年的精彩。但队友们回国后站长又独自在中国继续考察三周,后三周照片还没发,等发齐估计还有精彩内容)

压题照片:武汉鹦鹉洲长江大桥

The special spans visited during the first week included Yingwuzhou, Siduhe, Zhijinghe, Tieluoping, Longtanhe, Shuanghekou, Xiaohe, Caijiagou and Qiancaobei Bridges as well as a visit to Western China's most populous city of Chongqing where the world's longest span arch and beam bridges reside in the form of Chaotianmen and Shibanpo.

第一周游览的特色桥梁包括:鹦鹉洲长江大桥,四渡河大桥,支井河大桥,铁罗坪大桥,龙潭河大桥,双河口大桥,小河大桥,蔡家沟大桥和青草背长江大桥。同时游览了中国西部最大城市重庆,那里有世界主跨最大的拱桥和梁桥——朝天门长江大桥和石板坡长江大桥。

A view of the cavernous new waiting hall of the Hongqiao High Speed Railway station. Our adventure finally began on the morning of August 3rd with a trip between Hongqiao station in Shanghai and Hankou station in Wuhan. China opened their first high speed line in 2007 and now have the largest high speed rail network in the world! Image by John Morrison.

虹桥高速铁路车站一瞥。我们的探险终于从8月3日开始了,首先从虹桥站搭车到汉口站。中国第一条高速铁路2007年开通(有误,是2008),今天(2013年8月)已经成为世界高速铁路网络最长的国家!

我们团队到达武汉

Our driver Mr. Chen met us in Wuhan after driving more then 1,200 kilometers from Guiyang city in Guizhou Province. Image by Richard Scott.

我们的司机陈先生从贵阳开车一千多公里到武汉来接我们。

The great Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge looked spectacular from our hotel room at the Holiday Inn. This was the very first large bridge to cross the Yangtze when it was completed in 1957. The giant road and rail bridge was the model by which the more famous First Nanjing Bridge was based on. Russian Bridge engineers assisted in the design of the double decker truss that carries 2 tracks of the Beijing-Guangzhou line on the bottom as well as 4 road lanes and 2 pedestrian walkways on the top. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

大型的武汉长江大桥从我们住宿的假日酒店看上起很壮观。这是第一座跨越长江的大桥,建于1957年。这座公铁两用桥是后来更著名的南京长江大桥的蓝本。俄国桥梁工程师帮助设计了这座桥,下层为双线京广铁路,上层为四线公路和左右的人行道。

Not everyone's room directly faced the Yangtze River but the Morrisons got a nice view of the Han River arch bridge. This is one of many CFST bridges in China where the arch ribs are steel tubes filled with concrete. Image by John Morrison.

不是每个人的窗户都面对长江,莫里森兄弟的房间能清楚地看到汉水拱桥。这是中国众多的CFST拱桥之一。CFST指钢管混凝土拱桥(Concrete Filled Steel Tube arch,目前只有中国大规模使用这种技术修建拱桥)

鹦鹉洲长江大桥的缆索高悬在两个桥跨上空。这座桥仅仅在著名的武汉长江大桥上游2公里。两跨分别有850米,桥塔高约150米。

(大桥所在的位置为古代鹦鹉洲。唐代诗人崔颢《登黄鹤楼》名句:晴川历历汉阳树,芳草萋萋鹦鹉洲,既为此地)

难以置信的沪渝高速鄂西段,(短短300公里内)就包括超过120公里隧道,其中有几座十分长,如这座8000多米的隧道。在3星期内,我们团所有成员穿越的隧道比各自此前一生中经过的更长。

(长阳县)榔坪镇在下午的午餐时间异常安静

The gargantuan Longtanhe Viaduct with 200 meter spans perched almost 200 meters above the valley floor. This was the world's 2nd largest viaduct for several years behind France's Millau Viaduct. China's own Chishi and Sanshuihe viaducts have recently pushed it further down to 4th place among all the world's viaducts but it is still an impressive site to behold. Image by John Morrison.

巨大的 龙潭河高架桥,包括几个每个200米的主跨,桥面距离地面近200米。这是世界第二高的多跨高架桥,仅次于著名的法国 米约大桥。中国在建的 赤石 三水河高架桥 将使龙潭河大桥退居第四名。不过这座桥仍然非常雄伟壮观。(有178米高的桥墩,周边植被非藏茂密)

The Shuanghekou Bridge on the G50 is most impressive for its piers which are 163 meters tall. Image by Richard Scott.

双河口大桥 也是沪渝高速上令人印象深刻的桥梁之一,其桥墩高达163米。 (桥面高200余米,沪渝高速鄂西段200余公里内,桥面距离水面高200米以上的大桥有9座,接近中国以外所有国家高桥总和。在中国西南,这样的高速公路有多条)

A railway train crosses the Shuanghekou creek. The Yichang-Wanzhou Railway roughly parallels the G50 and is the most difficult stretch of railway line ever undertaken anywhere in the world. No other railway line outside China has more then one bridge over 100 meters high - the Wanzhou line has six. Of the 377 kilometer length, 288 kilometers are on bridges or in tunnels. Image by Richard Scott.

一列火车驶过双河口峡谷。宜万铁路(宜昌到万州)和沪渝高速平行,是全世界最难修建的铁路(没有之一)。中国以外没有一条铁路有超过一座百米以上高度桥梁——宜万铁路有6座。377公里铁路有288公里在隧道或桥上。

(译 注:宜万铁路最难的不是桥,是隧道穿过无数巨大的充水石灰岩溶洞,鄂西大山都是石灰岩中空的,别看外表雄伟,里面千疮百孔。有的洞内为支撑洞顶修起的钢筋 混凝土巨柱行列望之不逊Lord of the Rings中Moria地下大殿,比日本东京首都圈排水系统壮观的多;有的洞内为越过暗河修建大型洞中桥梁。因溶洞水量极大先后牺牲数十名工人。平行的沪 渝高速公路因选线较高避免了大部分溶洞,基本无工人死亡。此后中国在岩溶地区修建铁路吸取教训,选线宁高勿低,高海拔溶洞相对少,即使有洞大多是干的,山 底溶洞大多充满数百万甚至更多立方水!)

We took an hour long detour to see the famous Jiuxigou stone arch bridge which had the longest stone arch span in the world upon its completion in 1972 with a length of 116 meters.

我们花了一小时赶去看著名的九溪沟石 拱桥。1972年此桥落成时,是世界最大的石拱桥,主跨116米。今天它仍排名世界第三,仅次于中国1991年和2001年分别修建的务川河与 丹河拱桥

(石拱桥是代表中华文化的中国传统桥型,1949年后中国各地新建了大批石拱桥,以致今日世界主跨最长的前20名石拱桥全部在中国,都是现代新建的)

The bridge was completed in 1989. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

乌江 涪陵拱桥。这座200米主跨的拱桥是中国第二次使用转体施工技术建设拱桥。转体施工是先将拱桥两半拱分别在各自山坡上建好,然后旋转到河中央合龙。此桥建 于1989年。 (和钢管混凝土拱桥一样,拱桥转体施工也是中国独创的技术,从未在任何其他国家应用过,所以需要专门解释)

I have come across something new and spectacular every trip I have taken to China but the most incredible find yet may well be the epic cliff sculpture of the goddess Avalokiteśvara (观音) just south of Qianjiang City. The bas-relief sculpture is reportedly 123 meters high with a width of 69 meters but the full height above the river is around 275 meters based on the height of the nearby pipeline bridge. This is approximately the same height as the entire Stone Mountain in Georgia which is 263 meters from the summit to the surrounding terrain. The sculpture on Stone Mountain is just 48 x 23 meters with the outer cutout measuring 109 x 58 meters. This would make the Qianjiang Avalokiteśvara sculpture the largest of its type in the world. What is not clear is how much of the surface is made of concrete rather then just pure stone carving. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

经过了不少新奇壮观的旅程,但最不 可思议的发现是黔江城南峭壁上正在雕刻一尊观音女神像。这尊浅浮雕菩萨像有123米高,69米宽,但从河面算起雕像顶部约有275米高。大约和乔治亚州石 山的相对高度一样。石山上的雕塑只有48*23米,外框109*58米。这使得黔江观音像成为这类浮雕中最大的。目前不清楚的是其表面有多大会是混凝土而 不是完全从石面雕刻出。

The red cables contrast nicely with the gray towers. Image by Richard Scott.

红色的主缆和灰色的桥塔对比鲜明

Most suspension bridges have a small upward bow or camber in the middle. Since the Lishuihe Bridge grade is continuously rising, a bow would only add to the steepness of the grade and so the truss and deck were designed to be straight. Siduhe and Aizhai suspension bridges are also flat for the same reason. Image by John Morrison.

绝大部分悬索桥中部是稍微向上弯曲的。澧水大桥桥两端不等高,因此桥面是直的,没有中间突起。四渡河与矮寨大桥也一样。

Our second day in the Zhangjiajie region began with a tour of the amazing Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, a private park 20 kilometers east of the national park. The owner and chief architect of the park and its attractions is also a skilled engineer whose ambitious plans include nothing less then the construction of the highest and longest suspension footbridge ever constructed with a deck more then 250 meters above the canyon. Even more amazing he wants the entire span to be covered in glass panels. The cable shown above was placed along the exact alignment of the planned 430 meter suspension bridge. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

我们在张家界的第二天始于一趟张家界峡谷有趣的旅行,一个私人经营的公园,位于张家界国家公园以东20公里。该公园经营者打算修建一座世界最高、最长的玻璃吊桥横跨张家界大峡谷。超过250米高,由玻璃地板铺砌。规划跨度达430米。(此后为配合环保要求,又加长了不少)

第三周 贵州和云南省

压题照片,北盘江花江大桥 (2003-2005年间的世界最高桥)

The special spans visited during the third week included Balinghe, Dimuhe, Beipanjiang 2003, Beipanjiang 2009, Beipanjiang High Speed Railway, Beipanjiang 2016, Liuchonghe, Xixi, Luojiaohe, Yanjinhe, Liuguanghe, Wujiang, Hutiaohe and Zhuchanghe Bridges. We also toured the famous Zunyi conference building.

本周我们将游览的独特桥梁包括坝陵河大桥,抵母河大桥,北盘江2003桥(花江),北盘江 2009桥(沪昆),北盘江高速铁路桥,北盘江2016桥(都格),六冲河大桥,西溪大桥,落脚河大桥,盐津河大桥,六广河大桥,乌江大桥,虎跳河大桥, 朱昌河大桥 。我们还将游览著名的遵义会议旧址

There was no better way to kick off the 3rd week then our tour of Balinghe Bridge, the longest and highest in Guizhou Province. A group of CCTV producers met us at the bridge to talk about the possibility of doing a world record bungee jump from the bridge for an episode of the China Guinness TV show. Although the bungee attempt has been put on hold we had a pleasant afternoon with Guizhou highway leader Zhou Ping and producers Wang Wei, Pia and Gao MingZe. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

我们第三周旅途开始的地方是贵州最大最高的大桥—— 坝陵河大桥。没有什么比这更激动人心。一些CCTV的制作人遇到我们,大家谈论能否策划一个世界最高的蹦极活动记录入吉尼斯大全。尽管后来蹦极活动没有实际举行,我们和贵州公路部门领导之一周平,CCTV制作人王巍、Pia以及高明泽一起度过了一个愉快的下午。

Our second big tour of Guizhou Province was across the gargantuan Dimuhe footbridge that was constructed to allow workers to access the north slope where construction is underway on the new G56 Dimuhe suspension bridge. The chicken-wire span is 300 meters above the reservoir surface and has a main span of 510 meters - even longer then the Brooklyn Bridge. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

我们在贵州省的第二个主要目标是穿越巨大的抵母河临时便桥。这座施工用人行桥是为方便工人们在抵母河峡谷两岸穿梭。抵母河大桥 位于G56杭瑞高速公路,高达360米。人行便桥距离水面也有300米高,跨度达510米!甚至比著名的布鲁克林桥跨都长。

(因 地形独特,市辖八县被大量数百米深垂直峡谷切割成无数台地,毕节地区直到2001年才通第一条二级公路——贵阳至毕节公路。此路等级低,车流大,经过无数 高桥、隧道,自通车以来已有近千人丧命于此,是中国大陆最著名的“死亡公路”。全地区700万人以往不通铁路、没有高速公路,大半仰赖此条二车道的生命 线。因此毕节曾是贵州人均所得最低的地方。自从2012年后,毕节地区各县均陆续通高速公路,成贵高速铁路和许多普通铁路也在建。今天贵毕公路已成为沿路 群众出行的小道,绝大多数车流改走新建的高速公路。死亡公路的名声一去不复返。毕节地区高桥之多,不但超过中国外任何国家,可能已超过中国以外全世界总 和!仅毕节下属黔西县已建在建的桥面高二百米以上大桥就有9座,中国以外世界总和只有十余座。)

This wall was built sometime after 2011 to completely block any motorbike or pedestrian traffic from crossing the damaged bridge. A new beam bridge was built in 2007 to bypass the arch. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com

这堵墙建于2001年以阻止车辆通过危险的拱桥,一座2007年修建的新梁桥在附近通过

(盐 津河拱桥和许多中国西南旧拱桥一样是混凝土桁架拱桥,这种拱桥因建造极简单,省料,70年代末源于贵州,在80、90年代中国西南大量推广,但随后发现这 种桥型难以控制伸缩缝变形,使用不久后伸缩缝附近容易开裂,甚至有跨塌的危险。从90年代至今中国跨塌桥梁中,除被超重货车压垮的之外,绝大部分都是这 类混凝土桁架拱桥,是这类桥固有缺陷造成的跨塌。因此本世纪初以来已禁止新建这种拱桥,改用钢管混凝土拱和连续钢构梁桥。但20余年间山区有许多这类桥, 其中不安全的大多已禁止通过,有的已拆除。混凝土桁架拱是20世纪70年代中国西南山区人民在物资极端匮乏,地形极为恶劣情况下独创的建筑形式,这个创新 失败了,但并不意味中国其他类型桥梁不牢靠。目前全世界发展中国家近半大桥由中国承建,并已进入英美市场,如著名的英国福斯铁路桥旁的公路桥就是中国承建 的)
