Zhoushan Bridge is Opened [China]

Sea-crossing bridge links island city with mainland
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2009-12-25 20:13


HANGZHOU: A sea-crossing bridge linking Zhoushan City, China's only city of more than 1,000 islands in eastern Zhejiang Province, with the country's mainland went into trial operation Friday.

Costing 13.1 billion yuan (US$1.9 billion), the 46.5 km-long Zhoushan Sea-crossing Bridge, so far the longest of its kind in the country, was completed after 10 years of construction.

The bridge starts at the Zhoushan island, passing the island of Lidiao, Fuchi, Cezi and Jintang and traversing several watercourses, and connects with the national expressway network at Zhenhai District in Ningbo, an economically strong city of Zhejiang Province.

The opening of the bridge will improve the life of Zhoushan residents and facilitate the development of the deep-water harbors of Zhoushan and Ningbo, said Lu Zushan, governor of Zhejiang.

Rich in marine resources, Zhoushan is one of China's major fishing grounds. The Zhoushan Port is a natural communications hub for ships sailing from south to north. It handled more than 10 million twentyfoot-equivalent units (TEUs) last year.

Looks great!

What is the actual length of the main crossing (last 2 images)? Does the 46.5 km refer to this crossing or the whole project?

Yes, 46.5km refer to the whole project. I don't know the actual length, maybe 25km.

there is some span figure about these bridges. It's 1650m(西堠门大桥), 620m(金塘大桥)

The Zhoushan islands are close to Shanghai


Zhoushan Bridges



Bridges along the whole highway (48km), from Zhoushan to the Mainland:

1) 岑港大桥/Cengang Bridge. Not important at all.


2) 响礁门大桥/Xiangjiaomen Bridge. Not important either.


3) 桃夭门大桥/Taoyaomen Bridge. Cable stayed. Span: 560m. World's 14th longest cable stayed bridge and China's 9th.


4) 西堠门大桥/Xihoumen Bridge. Suspension Bridge. Span: 1650m. Worlds second longest suspension bridge. Total length over the sea: 5.3km.


5) 金塘大桥/Jintang Bridge. Cable stayed. Span: 620m. World's 7th longest cable stayed bridge and China's 5th. Total length over the sea: 26.5 km, World's/China's third longest.

In the last years I've read several rumors quoting long term plans to build more bridges to the outer islands of the Zhoushan Archipielago. They also want to link Zhoushan islands with the Yangshan deep water port. Furthermore, they will add a railway project from Shanghai to the Yangshan port, Zhoushan islands and Zhejiang mainland. Can anybody confirm any of these proposals?

Actually the Zhoushan-Ningbo port is world's second busiest already. Tianjin to catch up as world's busiest in a few years though.

Does anyone know when or if the Donghai bridge will be extended to Daishan, and eventually Zhoushan? I feel like if this was built, this would boost tourism in Zhoushan tremendously!

Also, does anyone know when or if there will be a bridge constructed between Zhoushan and Taohua island? I'm surprised that for such beautiful areas, those plans aren't obvious.
