Hu Wei Bridge, Huwei Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan
Huwei Railway Bridge is composed of three sections of steel beams with different heights and staggered stands, and ten huge arch-shaped hollow bridge piers. This magnificent and heroic “Huwei Iron Bridge” style not only symbolizes Taiwan’s independence. In the precarious and distressed environment of the early years, the “iron and steel era” that followed the hardships and steps along the way has now become an eternal historic landmark for generations.
Huwei Iron Bridge is one of the few railroad bridges that run sugar mills in the country. It is also affiliated with the Panzhihua Bridge on the side of the early stage. It is an important transportation bridge between Huwei Town and the residents of both sides of the new Huwei River. The reputation is not as loud as the Xiluo Bridge. However, the construction time was longer than the Xiluo Bridge. After the reconstruction of the Panzhihua Bridge, it became an important leisure attraction.
