The duration of preparation was six years and it took eight years to build the 55-kilometer-long bridge linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao.
Major work on the bridge was on a 22.9-kilometer-long main bridge, a 6.7-kilometer-long tunnel and an artificial island off the bridge, the most technically demanding part of the entire construction.
It is expected that the Y-shaped bridge will cut travel time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai from three hours to just 30 minutes.
The Greater Bay Area will see a highly convenient and efficient transportation network having a good expanding capacity of road,rail and ports.
