It is located in the middle part of the Yangtze River delta, and situated at South bank of the Yangtze River, between the two big golden waterways --Yangtze River and Beijing-Hangzhou Great Canal. To the North it reaches the northern Jiangsu plain, Shangdong, Anhui area, and up to the Yangtze River it reaches the six provinces: Anhui,Jiangxi, Hunan, Hubei, Sichuan and Chongqing provinces and down to the Yangtze River it reaches the rivers through 279 miles and leads to the international ports. The internal port railroad is connected with the Beijing to Shanghai railroad main line, and the port road links with the Shanghai and Nanjing high speed road, 312 national highways, 218 provincial roads. The Beijing-Hangzhou Great Canal, the Runyang Bridge and the Taizhou-Yangzhou Yangtze River Bridge that is still under construction will link the north and south channels.
