Marking the new year, Hangzhou's Canal Bay Pedestrian Bridge in Gongshu district has opened for trial use. This bridge not only fulfills functional connectivity in the region but also creates a comfortable waterside public space, offering diverse cultural venues for the convenience of locals strolling and commuting across the canal sides.

Featuring a unique reversed Fink truss structure, the bridge spans 181.8 meters with a main span of 150 meters and a width of 8 meters, earning it a Guinness World Record as the largest single-span reversed Fink truss bridge in the world. Its design, inspired by the contour of boats on the Grand Canal, mimics the shape of canal barges. The bridge's light and elegant form, with its cable-stayed columns resembling ship masts, evokes the ripple of a boat on water.
