Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge is the longest bridge-and-tunnel sea crossing and the longest and deepest undersea tunnel, which took over 400,000 tons of steel to build. The 55 km-long bridge-island-tunnel system crosses the waters of the Lingdingyang channel in the Pearl River Estuary linking Hong Kong in the east with Zhuhai and Macao in the west. The main bridge section is 29.6 km and.

Hong Kong plays a crucial role as China’s southern gateway, and the ease of connecting with the mainland provides the city with an edge in attracting more British and international visitors.
The project includes a 29.6 km dual 3-lane carriageway in the form of bridge-cum-tunnel structure comprising a tunnel of about 6.7 km; two artificial islands for the tunnel landings west of the HKSAR boundary; and associated works including civil and structural works, environmental mitigation, drainage, electrical and mechanical, traffic control and surveillance system, etc. Hong Kong-Zhuhai.
Hong Kong LR Tunnel At the eastern end of the Hong Kong LR viaduct, the road will become a tunnel that will link the Hong Kong International Airport Island to the Hong Kong BCF.

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HZMB) and tunnel system is one of the world’s longest undersea vehicular tunnel and most challenging civil engineering projects. HZMB is located over busy sea lanes and deep below the choppy estuarial waters of the Pearl River Delta.
The 55 km Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge has a 6.7 km undersea tunnel, 2 offshore artificial islands. The undersea tunnel and offshore artificial islands are never made before the construction of HZMB, and the technology to build this sea-crossing bridge was a great challenge to China, but China did it. The successful construction has sharpened China’s technology and impressed the world with.
The world’s longest sea crossing connecting Hong Kong with Macau and Zhuhai opened this week in China. The unusual bridge cum tunnel system consist of a series of three cable-stayed bridges and one undersea tunnel, as well as two artificial islands for a total length of 55 km.
