One Third of HK-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Completed

The Jiuzhou Channel Bridge section of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge has been completed, meaning that a third of the biggest bridge construction project in China has been completed.

Tan Guoshun, project manager of China Major Bridge Engineering Group Company, LTD., said the completion of the section is of great significance.

"This means MBEC's technology, requirements and construction plan are reliable. This further validates our country's integrated bridge-building technique."

Tan added that even taking into account the challenges from the wind, corrosion, and earthquakes, the bridge's life span is expected to be 120 years.

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge project is 50 kilometers long, linking China's Hong Kong and Macao with the city of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province.

After its completion, it will only take about half an hour to drive from Hong Kong to Zhuhai, compared with the current time of more than three hours.
