The project is one of Changsha's "Ten Infrastructure Projects" in 2021. It starts from the west of Yinshan Road and ends at the west of Beijing-Guangzhou Railway Bridge with a total length of 5.475 km. Its 4.96-km-long main bridge across the Xiangjiang River is a twin-tower cable-stayed bridge with a span of "165 meters +380 meters +165 meters". 

The project is the largest municipal bridge project in Hunan province. It is expected to be completed by October 2024.
