I don't understand...

They reclaim land to build a container port on some small little island that's so far away and then they build a HUGE bridge to link it? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just reclaim a port closer to the city centre and then have a much shorter bridge?

But isn't that they look for deep port? I am not sure but I think the choice for having a deep water port is in that site, while the closer site is not deep enough.

Shanghai's Yangshan Port Phase I expected to start operation in November - MoC

BEIJING (XFN-ASIA) - Shanghai's Yangshan deep water port Phase I is expected to start operations in November this year, said the Ministry of Commerce (MoC).

The Phase I project has four container berths with designed annual capacity of 2.2 mln twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).

Construction on the project started in April 2002.

Shanghai Port, mainland China's largest, saw container throughput rise 29 pct to 14.55 mln TEUs in 2004, allowing it to maintain its position as the world's third largest port in terms of containers handled.

Shanghai Port's container throughput is expected to reach about 20 mln TEUs by 2007 and total about 25 mln by 2010.
