3 Bridges of Bitan
Since it opened in 1937, the Bitan Suspension Bridge has been the top landmark in Xindian. This 200-meter long suspension bridge has held up countless treasured stories from the people who walk across it. It is the best known bridge in Xindian, but not the only one. In 1956, downstream of it another Bitan Bridge was built, this one was made out of concrete because of the difficulty in maintaining the metal rods that hold the original together. Then in conjunction with the opening of National Freeway No. 3 in 1997, a new arch bridge opened in Bitan. This gave the area three bridges spanning three different generations, with each serving as a unique landmark.
