This newly constructed Rainbow Bridge is now safe for traffic. In the evening, the people of Jinze watch a fireworks display from the perfect spot in town: their new Rainbow Bridge. Professor Tang, happy to see the realization of his life-long dream, observes:

"Bridges have always helped bring people together. You can see it today. People from both sides of the river are now more closely connected. But the rainbow arch is also a bridge across time, from the present to the past."
