China has strong capabilities of bridge construction. In recent years, many high-quality cross-sea bridges have been built. These projects not only provide convenience for people’s lives, but also is a beautiful landscape themselves.
Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge
The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge project has the characteristics of large scale, short construction period, up-to-the-minute technology, less experience, many processes, wide professionalism, high requirements and many difficulties. It is the longest sea-crossing bridge built in the world, in road design, service life and prevention and has high standards for collision and earthquake resistance, flood resistance and wind resistance.
Amoy Bridge is China’s first road bridge across the strait. It consists of three parts: The Takasaki approach road, the cross-sea main bridge and the Jimei interchange.
Jiashao Bridge is the longest and widest multi-tower cable-stayed bridge in the world. The main bridge is 2,680 meters long and has 5 main passages with a total width of 55.6 meters (including the cable area). The number of towers and the length of the main bridge are ranked first in the world.
Haicang Bridge is located in the middle of Xiamen West Port. It is the first three-span continuous floating steel box girder suspension bridge in Asia and the second in the world. It represents the highest level of China’s bridge construction in the 20th century.
Qing Lan Bridge
The Qinghai Cross-sea Bridge can be resistant to the magnitude 9 earthquake. It is the first sea-crossing bridge in China with the highest level of seismic fortification.
Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge
Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge was rated as the“Best Bridge in the World” by Forbes in September 2011. On June 4, 2013, the 30th International Bridge Conference (IBC) in Pittsburgh, USA awarded the George Richardson Award to Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge, which is the highest international award ever won by China’s bridge project.

Shantou Bay Bridge
The completion of the Shantou Bay Bridge has created the technology of China’s modern suspension bridge. It is the first modern suspension bridge in China. It has maintained the world record of the first-class in the international level of stiffening beam span.
Zhoushan Cross-sea Bridge
Zhoushan Cross-sea Bridge is the largest and most socially influential transportation infrastructure project in Zhoushan City. It is the world’s largest island-land liaison project. The main bridge Xihoumen Bridge is a two-span continuous steel box girder suspension bridge. It is the world’s largest steel box girder suspension bridge and is the world’s first double-box split steel box girder suspension bridge. It also is one of the world’s most wind-resistant bridge.
Lianyungang Tianwan Cross-sea Bridge
Lianyungang Tianwan Cross-sea Bridge is the key control project of Lianyungang Haibin Avenue. It is connected to Xujing New District in the south and Gaogong Island in the north.
