I take it that Hangzhou Bay is not very deep if rest areas supported by pylons in the water were built into the bridge.

Is Hangzhou Bay a busy area for ship transportation? I know that the city of Hangzhou is upriver from the bridge.

I guess the color can make the fence look outstanding in bad weather and to keep the driver from getting bored with "dull" ocean view.

When talking about chinese bridges, how could we forget these two:


Wuhan yangtze bridge, 1957, 1670m long,

first morden bridge over the largest river in Asia and for the first time, the north and south were connected by railway.




Nanjing yangtze bridge, 1968, 6772m long, the second bridge over yangtze river

China to build 18 mile bridge to connect Mainland and its SARs

http://www.chinaknowledge.com/News/n...ype=1&id=13852

Quote:
Mar. 11, 2008 (China Knowledge) - China is going to revive the construction of an 18-mile bridge linking Hong Kong, Macao and the mainland. The proposal of construction was put forward five years before. China yesterday approved the project and unveiled its plan to attract private partners in constructing the bridge, source reported.

According to the government, the bridge, which connects Lantau Island of Hong Kong, Macao with the southern Chinese city of Zhuhai, will cost a total of GBP2.95 billion. The project will be half financed by private partners. Private companies involved in the project will be refunded partly through tolls.

The project was part of a grand project undertaken by the central government to develop the country into an Asian giant and was first put forward in 2003. The project was halted due to the lack of capital.

China is now actively constructing its infrastructures in a bid to attract more investors. Its biggest rival in Asia, India, is now developing very quickly as well.

Huaihe Great Bridge takes shape

http://english.anhuinews.com/system/...01967977.shtml


Quote:
15576 -meter-long Huaihe Great Bridge on Hefei-Huainan-Fuyang Expressway, spanning Dongfeng Lake, Huaihe River, Shouxi Lake and East Feihe River, is the longest one in Anhui Province, even in east China. The bridge, linking Hefei, Lu’an, Huainan and Fuyang cities, costs 800 million RMB and the construction started on Jan.2, 2006. After 2–year hard work, the two sections of the bridge was connected successfully on March 9, 2008.

The completion of the main part of Huaihe Great Bridge will accelerate construction of the Hehuaifu Expressway and it is said the expressway is expected to be open to traffic in the first half year of 2008.

mind boggling with the length of the bridges being constructed in china and they don't look to bad at all it'd be a nightmare if the car stalls halfway in the bridge

Yunnan province's first "Love bridge" built for remote village students to cross Nu River.
