New manmade island paves way for longest bridge
Published on Dec 9, 2011
Workers in southern China completed the first phase of a new manmade island in the Pearl River Delta, which will eventually support the world’s longest sea bridge. Xinhua reported yesterday that the initial steel structure of the island is now in place, paving the way for construction of the 29.6km Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuhai bridge. The CNY73 billion (US$11.5 billion) project will link the three cities via two manmade islands. The bridge is expected to be complete by the end of 2016.
