Major construction of world’s longest cross-sea bridge completed

Major construction work was completed Tuesday on the world’s longest cross-sea bridge, which connects Zhuhai in Guangdong Province with Hong Kong and Macao.

A ceremony was held in Zhuhai to celebrate completion of the 55-km cross-sea route and beginning of the assembly of the bridge floor and related work.

“It means construction has entered its final stage,” said Zhu Yongling, head of the administration bureau of the bridge.

The bridge will cut travel time from Hong Kong to both Zhuhai and Macao from the current three hours on the road or one hour at sea to a mere half hour drive.
