The bridge is part of a comprehensive highway construction plan that will ultimately link Tsing Yi with a new tunnel into Shatin. More information in the highways section : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=338503

New signage that I saw on the highways say "Ngong Shuen Chau" in English, yet the bridge is named Stonecutters' Bridge in English (Ngong Shuen Chau Bridge in Chinese).

Has someone made a mistake in the Highways Dept.?

Ngong Sheun Chau is known as both Ngong Sheun Chau and Stonecutter's Island.

I suppose they are going in line with the pro chinese theme of just about everything in HK these days.

Just like Ap Lei Chau was called Aberdeen Island...

I guess it's also due to local popular usage?

I lived in Ap Lei Chau for long and have never heard people call it Aberdeen Island. Yes, Ap Lei Chau does get put in Aberdeen area in general but not Aberdeen Island specifically referring to Ap Lei Chau.

昂船洲大橋將展跨海工程
07月 23日 星期一 06:30AM
綜合報道
星島日報

用作連接昂船洲與青衣一段八號幹铫的昂船洲大橋,將於今年下半年展開最為矚目的跨海橋工程,兩年後竣工時將成為全球第二長的斜拉索橋。負責興建大橋的路政署工程師指出,昂船洲大橋主跨達到一千零五十八米,是繼江蘇蘇通大橋之後,成為另一條能突破「千米」界限的斜拉索橋。他期望大橋落成後,能令港人引以為傲的另一地標。

三年多前開始動工的昂船洲大橋,屬連接青衣至沙田 的八號幹铫一部分,兩段的三百米橋塔現時已興建至二百米的高度,預計今年稍後時間能開始興建跨海的橋身部分,按計畫於○九年落成。

一手籌劃大橋興建工作的路政署主要工程管理處高級工程師黃劍波表示,建造跨海橋身部分,是最矚目,難度也最大。他說:「跨海的橋身部分,會是像懸臂伸出去;以預製組件製成的橋身,逐一由躉船吊上半空燒焊連接,再跟拉索連接。當橋身伸出愈遠時,會愈受到風力影響,也是橋最脆弱的時候;直至兩邊的『大臂』合籠時,橋身才會穩定下來。」

全長一點六公里的昂船洲大橋,主跨部分達到一千零五十八米,落成後會成為世界第二長的斜拉索橋;位於江蘇省東部、主跨一千零八十八米的蘇通大橋,則會於明年率先竣工,成為全球最長的斜拉索橋。黃劍波指出,興建斜拉索橋的最大難度,在於當橋身愈長時,近橋塔的橋面所承受的應力亦會相對較多,昔日一直以一千米作為興建極限,目前全球最長的日本 多多羅斜拉索橋,只有八百九十米。

隨覑科技和工程的不斷進步,拉索強度日漸增加,才令橋身的跨道可以愈來愈長,昂船洲大橋的最長一段拉索就達到五百四十米,「蘇通大橋早前亦已『合籠』,說明『不肯定因素』已不存在。」他補充說,過去橋身較長的橋梁,多以青馬大橋 的「吊橋」方式興建;斜拉索橋主要利用拉索「約束」橋身,毋須建造較深的橋躉作支撐,相對較具成本效益。

曾參與長青隧道興建工作的黃劍波,已於路政署工作達十七年。他憶述,於九七年開始接手昂船洲大橋的興建工作,從大橋的走铫規劃,到大橋設計比賽,眼見大橋逐步按計畫落成,是一件賞心樂事。他笑言:「沒有轉部門的其中原因,是由於個人對建造大橋有一份興趣;昂船洲大橋的建造過程前後將會達十二年,如果我的公務員生涯有三十多年,相信會有三分之一的時間是花在『照顧』這條橋之上。」

昂船洲大橋是繼汀九橋 、汲水橋和西部通道後,本港另一條大型斜拉索橋。黃劍波希望,坐落在維港顯注位置的昂船洲大橋,可成為本港另一地標,經常在電視或明信片中「亮相」。
